Breast cancer: You can help me eradicate this devastating disease
The Mother’s Day Classic (MDC) walk or run for breast cancer research was established in 1998 – it started from modest beginnings as a walk in the park and has grown into a major national
From the inaugural events in Melbourne and Sydney which attracted approximately 3,200 people, the event has now become an integral part of Mother’s Day morning for more than 135,000 Australians who enjoy getting up early to walk or run and raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.
In 2016, more than 107,000 Australians who took part in the event raised $3 million for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). This takes the total raised since 1998 to $30.4 million.
Sunday 14 May is Mother’s Day this year and my family will again be participating in the Mother’s Day Classic to remember my sister, Mary and do something positive to prevent what happened to her from happening to others.
In 2017 I continue my role as a Community Champion for MDC inspired by the MBCF goal of zero breast cancer deaths by 2030.
My goal in the next 3 weeks is to raise $10,000 for breast cancer research, as part of my participation in this year’s MDC.
Once again this year I am asking for your help.

Once again, thank you for supporting breast cancer research and making a contribution towards preventing this devastating diseasewhich one in nine Australian women have to confront at some stage in their lives.
