Breast cancer is the 2nd most common cancer in Australia. One in 8 women and one in 688 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer, but thanks to research, 5-year survival rates have climbed to 89%.

Yet tragically, 7 women die from breast cancer EVERY DAY in Australia.

By taking part in Mother's Day Classic, you are helping to fund Australia's best research into the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

Your donation and fundraising efforts go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a 100% community-funded organisation.

In 2016 your efforts, combined with the generosity of event sponsors, gave $3 million to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. In total, since the event began in 1998, over $30 million has been donated by Mother’s Day Classic participants like you.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation invests in innovative and promising research that aims to stop deaths from breast cancer by 2030. That includes research to improve detection, develop new treatments and help women and men affected by breast cancer live longer, better lives.
