About fundraising

Fundraising for MDC2018 will open soon.

Breast cancer is the most common life-threatening cancer in Australia. One in 8 Australian women and around one in 700 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. But thanks to research, the 5-year survival rate has climbed from 76% to 90% today.

Yet tragically, 8 women die from breast cancer EVERY DAY in Australia - mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and friends.

By taking part in Mother's Day Classic, you are helping the National Breast Cancer Foundation to fund Australia's best research into the prevention and new treatments, to improve how breast cancer is diagnosed, managed and treated.

Your donation and fundraising efforts go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a 100% community-funded organisation. The National Breast Cancer Foundation invests in innovative world-class research and works towards zero 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 and better lives.

In 2016 your incredible efforts, combined with the generosity of our event sponsors, gave $3 million to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, funding more vital breast cancer research in Australia. Since the event began in 1998, over $30 million has been donated by Mother’s Day Classic participants like you.

Read about the research projects that Mother's Day Classic has helped the National Breast Cancer Foundation fund in your area.
