Why Volunteer

Not only will you make a difference by supporting and honouring those diagnosed with breast or ovarian cancer in Australia, but it’s a great opportunity to bring more meaning and purpose to your own life.

About the event

On Mother's Day, Sunday May 12 we have over 70 locations across Australia, from capital cities to regional towns, there's a place for you to lend a helping hand. Find your nearest event.

Who can volunteer

We’re inclusive of all volunteers, no matter your age, identity, abilities, or skills. If you enjoy meeting people, have a positive attitude and a willingness to help – you can volunteer! Volunteers of all ages are welcome, however volunteers under 16 years old will need to be accompanied by an adult and those under 18 years old will need parental / guardian consent.

What's involved

You’re part of the team. There are many roles you can play, from course set-up, getting walkers and runners underway from the start, greeting them at the finish line and cheering them on in between.  Our volunteers ensure the day is nothing short of spectacular.

Hi, I'm Rosa...

Losing my mum to breast cancer in 1991 was the main reason I started volunteering for the Mother's Day Classic over 15 years ago. I loved making a difference in helping fund research.

Little did I know I would become a breast cancer survivor myself. I love that my girls Adrianna and Carla and some close friends now join me. I love the finish line watching families, survivors and supporters coming through with big smiles.
