In 2016 over 100,000 families, friends and corporate teams of all ages and fitness levels across the country participated in the Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic – a fun way to kick-start their Mother’s Day.

What started in 1998 as a way to honour those affected by breast cancer and to support research into the disease has grown into Australia’s biggest breast cancer fundraising event.

This year the event raised $3 million for life-changing breast cancer research, and comprises the largest single donation to NBCF annually. Cumulatively the event has raised $30.4 million, supporting NBCF-funded research to drive earlier detection, more effective treatments and greater quality of life for those affected by breast cancer.

In each capital city the major event includes a presentation from an NBCF-funded researcher to bring home the message that funding breast cancer research often relies on everyday people doing their part and showing their support.

In addition to raising funds for research, there are other benefits to participating in the Mother’s Day Classic. Being active helps to de-stress, reinvigorate and is important for overall health and wellbeing.

“I’ve been running the Mother’s Day Classic every year since my cancer treatment ended. I’ve also been working as a personal trainer since then and I encourage all my clients to run too.”- Suzanne from Adelaide.
