Mother’s Day Classic 12TH MAY

Mother’s Day Classic

The Mother’s Day Classic is an annual tradition for thousands of Australians. It is a day to support and honour women diagnosed with breast and ovarian cancer, and to raise vital funds for cancer research.

Over the past 26 years, participants have donated $44 million to fund life-saving breast cancer research. These funds are helping research to detect tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes and save lives.

The MDC community is proud that since their start in 1998, the relative 5 year survival rate for breast cancer has increased from 84% to 92%. But they recognise that there is still more to be done. Tragically, every day 9 more Australian women die. Because of ovarian cancer, that tally rises to 12 women per day. The rates of survival for ovarian cancer have barely shifted in recent years.

This year, participants are invited to run or walk in support of ovarian cancer research in addition to breast cancer research. Let’s progress towards the day where every woman diagnosed with either breast or ovarian cancer will be given the assurance that they can survive.
