The Mother’s Day Classic to raise funds for breast cancer research is happening in cities over Australia on May 10.
The Mother’s Day Classic walk or run for breast cancer research was established in 1998 – it started from modest beginnings as a walk in the park and has grown into a major national community event that the whole family can participate in for a great cause.
From the inaugural events in Melbourne and Sydney which attracted approximately 3,200 people the event has now become an integral part of Mother’s Day morning for more than 135,000 Australians who enjoy getting up early to walk or run and raise money for breast cancer research.
In 2014, a record 130,000 people across Australia ran or walked in a Mother’s Day Classic event in eleven cities and 88 regional locations. Participants and fundraisers raised $4.5 million for National Breast Cancer Foundation research programs, taking our total raised over 17 years to $24.3 million.
The Sydney Mother’s Day Classics for 2015 will start at The Domain and Parramatta Park at 6am. Both events involve a 4km walk and run and a 7km walk and 8km run.
