Mother's Day Classic is returning to a location near you!

Walk or run at up to 70 events across Australia. In major and metro cities, you’ll experience the buzz of the event village, entertainment, music, and food stalls. Your commemorative medallion will be handed over with pink pride on the day.

Or, join the sea of pink in your local community. Our Local events may be smaller in size but are big in community spirit! You’ll receive your commemorative medallion as you cross the finish line.

If you’re unable to join us on Mother’s Day, you can participate at your own time and place with MDC Anywhere.

Celebrating 26 years of impact

Since Mother’s Day Classic’s inception in 1998, over 1.5 million participants have donated $41.45 million to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to fund life-saving breast cancer research.

Since 1994, the 5-year survival rate has increased from 76% to 92% - statistical proof that research is making a difference. However, there’s still a long way to go.

We’d love for you to join us on Mother’s Day as we celebrate 26 years of support, participation, and fundraising.
