How to organise a Mother's Day Classic event in your town

Please note we are taking expressions of interest for 2015!

Why not organise a Mother’s Day Classic event in your town?

You don’t have to live in a capital city to be part of this nationwide community event – you can set up your own Mother’s Day Classic event in your town, no matter how big or small! All you need is a local park or circuit, some walking shoes and a group of people to come together to raise money for a great cause.

In 2014, there were 88 regional MDC events held around Australia. Breast cancer is one of the most commonly occurring cancers in Australian women, and holding a Mother’s Day Classic in your local area is a great way to show your community’s support to the women and their families who are coping with a diagnosis.

Community organisations, athletics clubs and schools are all welcome to participate, and there is no set distance. Most events have a 4km walk, but some also host a run. With the emphasis on having fun and giving it a go, the Mother’s Day Classic is a great tradition to start with family and friends.

There are three key aspects of the existing Mother’s Day Classic events that Women in Super seek to replicate in the regional events:

  • Fundraising for breast cancer research (all profits go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation).
  • The coming together of the community in an environment that provides support for those fighting breast cancer  and those remembering loved ones lost to breast cancer.
  • Participation in a fun physical activity as a community.

It is expected that all regional events would follow a similar format, being:

  • Event commences
  • Memorial minute of silence to remember those lost to breast cancer.
  • Walk takes place.
  • Presentation of prizes/drawing of raffles etc if applicable.
