Make Mother’s Day mean more and join us for the 2019 Mother’s Day Classic

As we raise our collective voices on World Cancer Day, registrations open for the annual fundraising walk or run event. Each year World Cancer Day empowers everyone to come together and rally under the one banner to raise awareness in a positive and inspiring way.  Register for the MDC today and show support to make cancer a global health priority.

The Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic (MDC) is Australia’s largest breast cancer fundraising initiative with funds going directly to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) for vital breast cancer research.

“Together, with the support of Women in Super and Mother’s Day Classic, we can continue to fund game-changing breast cancer research to stop deaths from breast cancer,” says Professor Sarah Hosking, CEO of NBCF.

There are many ways to get involved in this fun and family-friendly event by walking, running, fundraising, donating or volunteering. Participation will support the 50 Australian women who are diagnosed with breast cancer every day [i].

Sharon Morris, MDCF CEO says, “We are committed to funding vital breast cancer research and our aim is to raise over $2.1 million this year to make a significant impact in improving survival rates and treatment outcomes. Now 91 per cent of women are still alive five years after diagnosis [ii].”

“Every year we are inspired by the people who take up the opportunity to make a difference and support those diagnosed with breast cancer.  We want to make Mother’s Day mean more to all those women and their families, friends and colleagues to empower their lives with positive outcomes,” Ms Morris said.

Walk, run, fundraise, donate or volunteer to help Make Mother’s Day Mean More and join us for the 2019 Mother’s Day Classic.

This year’s Mother’s Day Classic walk/run will be held on Sunday 12 May across Australia in close to 100 locations, from capital cities, regional centres and remote towns all around Australia.
