Thank you for your support
We are thrilled to announce that in 2023, over 65,000 Australians came together to donate $2.55M to breast cancer research.
Since 1998, $44 million has now been donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation to fund research that helps detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes, and ultimately save lives. We are so thankful to every single person in the community who came together to get active for breast cancer research.
In 2024 we're going further...
Thanks to research, the relative five-year survival rate for breast cancer has increased from 84 per cent to 92 per cent since the Mother’s Day Classic started in 1998. However, there’s still more to be done to achieve the goal of zero deaths from breast cancer. Tragically, treatment advances in ovarian cancer have been limited, and treatment approaches have barely changed in 30 years. The survival rate for ovarian cancer is just 49 per cent and there remains no early detection test.
That's why, participants in the 2024 Mother's Day Classic event will be provided with the option of taking part in support of and fundraising for breast cancer research, ovarian cancer research or both – it’s up to you!
