Mothers Day Fun Run 2011

Calling all those who would like to participate in this year’s Mother’s Day Classic fun run and walk to raise funds for breast cancer research

Date: May 8th 2011

The Mother’s Day Classic fun run has been an ongoing event for more than a decade and it’s an annual event to provide communities with a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day and support breast cancer research.

It’s a key fundraising events for the year, if you are interested in participating or if you just want to volunteer your time to help out on the day, simply register at http://mothersdayclassic.com.au


 

The Mother’s Day Classic is in ten cities and 26 regional locations across the country. It’s a memorable morning dedicated to everyone with breast cancer and raising funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

The funds you raise as a participant in the Mother’s Day Classic will help support the most relevant research into breast cancer in Australia. By fundraising and getting people to sponsor your walk or run you make an even bigger contribution to improve the future for the one in nine women diagnosed with this disease.

Your fundraising invests in the future health of Australian women with breast cancer.

Money raised is helpful for practical aspects like access to appropriate clinical management but also to provide the proper support from close family and friends and support from wider social networks – and empowerment to make ones own decisions at key parts of the journey.

When asked what is important to people who have breast cancer? Professor Melissa Southey from the University of Melbourne had this to say, ”Our studies demonstrate that a very large proportion of Australian women with breast cancer think that it is important to participate in research studies that aim to prevent, better diagnose and better treat breast cancer in the future.”

The breast cancer research studies have enrolled more than 13,000 families affected with breast cancer since 1992. These families have all given their time and attention to provide a considerable amount of information to our research about their lifestyles and their families, to give blood samples and allow us to access their tumour material. These families are recontacted from time to time to up date this information. Each family has their own story, each story is unique and special.
