Hear what schools are saying

  • St Michael's Collegiate Hobart

    “As a girls school, the Mother’s Day Classic is particularly important to many members of our community. Our students often bring their mothers along with them to the event. It has become a regular fixture on our school calendar and we are proud to be involved.”

  • Toorak College Melbourne

    “We decided to enter a Loreto team as I believed that it was a chance for women to show solidarity by completing the run/walk and supporting women affected by breast cancer. The event was also an excuse to do something healthy as a school group whilst raising money and awareness for those women affected.”

  • Normanhurst Boys Sydney

    “By actively getting involved in events like this, one soon begins to learn that everyone has the power to make a difference in society. Whether it be from running your own not-for-profit, to simply walking 4km and raising funds, every action has a reaction, and anyone can contribute to improving our community.”
