A gratifying day at the 2016 Mother’s Day Classic

Sunday 8 May 2016 was a damp day in Melbourne for the nineteenth
Mother’s Day Classic.

 

My immediate family; Michelle, Guy, Nikki and James joined me as we
walked the Melbourne course around The Tan. Although it was pouring with
rain as we left home, by the time we reached the start line the rain was
just a sprinkling. Along with over thirty thousand other people, we did
our bit to help raise money for breast cancer research.

 


After the runners and walkers had completed the course, there were
presentations on stage for the best costumes, biggest team and a few
other acknowledgements.

 

Included in those presentations was MDC CEO, Sharon Morris, presenting
me with an acknowledgement of my cumulative fundraising efforts (over
five campaigns), having exceeded $25,000.

 

Although I accepted the award and it has my name on it, the
acknowledgment was really for all of you   who have donated to my
annual campaign.

 

Thank you.

 

I can’t raise a significant amount of money unless I have a community of
people who are willing to dip into their pocket each year and make a
donation.

 

  My MDC fundraising campaign for 2016 closes next Monday, 16 May.

 

I am currently the 14th ranked national fundraiser for 2016
and sixth ranked in Victoria with my current donations sitting at
$5,535.

 

Would you be prepared to help me do something about breast cancer
deaths?

 

Research funding is what makes the biggest difference. All money raised
by the MDC goes towards

National Breast Cancer Foundation projects
across Australia.
Currently there are 27 projects.

 


If you would like to donate to my campaign to rid Australia of breast
cancer deaths by 2030 please visit my

link
(pink button on the top right).

 

If you have ever received anything of value from me; a blog, an eBook,
some advice or coaching, a referral, a book recommendation or anything
else of value then, if you haven’t already paid me in some way, please
consider showing your appreciation by donating to my campaign.

 

Let’s prevent any more friends, sisters, mothers, grandmothers, wives or
daughters from dying of breast cancer. Research has enabled the
five-year survival rate for breast cancer to hit 90%, but there’s still
so much work to be done to fully understand and treat advanced breast
cancer, where the five-year survival rates is only 22%.
