9 May 2021 Annual Event
Every year on Mother’s Day, thousands of Australians come together for the Mother’s Day Classic to get active, raise awareness, honour loved ones, raise funds and show support for the 1 in 7 women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. This year the Mother’s Day Classic is going Local! You can choose to join us at a Local location across Australia or complete your walk/run in your own time and place.
Over the past 23 years, the Mother’s Day Classic Foundation (MDCF) has raised nearly $38 million for life-saving breast cancer research. Since then, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer has increased from 84 per cent to 91 per cent. Research is making a difference, but there is still a long way to go before we are living in a world without breast cancer.
All participants will receive a limited edition Mother’s Day Classic race pack (valued at $30) including a medallion, race bib, backpack, start/finish line ribbon and sponsor goodies. Adults will also receive a limited edition head scarf and our special kids’ race pack includes chalk and stencils. Their furry friends can get a pet bandana so that every member of the family can join in on the fun!
