About us

The Mother's Day Classic is organised by Women in Super - a national network of women working in the superannuation and finance industries. It was established to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research.

The initiative was inspired by the knowledge that research is gradually improving the survival rate of the one in nine women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer by the age of 85.

All proceeds from the Mother's Day Classic are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a not for profit organisation that promotes and supports research into breast cancer prevention and treatment. Since 1998 the Mother's Day Classic has raised  $24.3 million dollars.

From modest beginnings in 1998, the Mother's Day Classic has grown into one of Australia's largest national charity events and has become an integral part of Mother's Day for thousands of Australians.

The majority of people who help to put together the Mother's Day Classic each year are volunteers predominantly from the Women in Super network.

You can get involved by registering to walk or run in all capital cities and various regional centres across Australia or volunteer and help out on the day at an event near you.
