The Classic way to celebrate Mother’s Day
Don’t forget Mothers Day! Mark Sunday 8 May on your calendar, because as well as staying in mum’s good books, that’s the date of the now customary Mother’s Day Classic run/walk.
The event, which has both 4km and 8km options, will be held in more than 100 locations, from capital cities to remote towns, all around Australia.
What started in 1998 as a way to honour those affected by breast cancer and to support research into the disease has grown into Australia’s largest breast cancer fundraiser involving more than 130,000 participants around the nation, raising money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Increasingly, the colourful event has become a way for groups of families and friends to participate in a healthy, fun activity to kick off their Mother’s Day. According to Mother’s Day Classic CEO Sharon Morris, the event is no average fun run.
‘It is a powerful day for families and friends to support breast cancer survivors and those who have lost loved ones to the disease,’ Morris said; ‘Mother’s Day Classic is not about breaking speed records. Our focus is on participation, whether you walk, run or volunteer. Many people have fun dressing up: you’ll see everything from pink pirates to teams in tutus. It is also about fundraising, and this year we have set a new target to provide $4 million for the National Breast Cancer Foundation to fund life-changing breast cancer research.’
