Breast cancer affects so many people in the community, it’s likely that many people in your community have been touched by this disease. What better way to give back than to organise a team for the Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic. As the major fundraiser for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the Mother’s Day Classic has contributed more than $37.05 million to breast cancer research.

Andrea raised $450 for her Mother’s Day Classic team ‘the Boobie Bunch’ by hosting a cupcake fundraiser at her workplace. With the help of 12 volunteers, Andrea was able to make 150 beautiful pink cupcakes and sell these for a gold coin donation.
With the funds raised through this cupcake sale, the Mother’s Day Classic will be able to help researchers investigate how changes in the breast’s immune system can increase the risk of breast cancer – knowledge which could ultimately lead to a breast cancer vaccine.
Community fundraising is a great way to get everyone involved at any time of the year, not just Mother’s Day.
Local publican in Bemm River, Ray Parker has shaved off his famous moustache. (Many in the town believe he was actually born with it!) Ray raised $700 for the MDC!
With support from their school community, our wonderful community ambassadors Lily and Rosie recently hosted a bake sale at their school and raised $900 for life-saving breast cancer research projects.
This $900 will help the Mother’s Day Classic to support researchers in developing tools to identify genetic and non-genetic risk factors so that those at high risk can make the right choices about preventative treatment.
