Top breast cancer fundraiser set for May

Sheree McLeod with family

The personal story of a cancer victim who just keeps fighint

Incredible cancer mum, Sheree McLeod, and her team raised $28,524 in the Mother’s Day Classic last year.

An annual tradition, the Mother’s Day Classic fun run and walk provides the community with a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day and raise funds for breast cancer research. See you on 11 May 2014!

Mother’s Day Classic’s overall contribution to breast cancer research since the event began in 1998 is a staggering $19.8 million, making the event Australia’s largest funder of National Breast Cancer Foundation research. In that time, 5 year survival rates for women diagnosed with breast cancer has increased to 89%. But, with research, more can be done. For more information on where your money goes, see the 2013/14 Classic Investments.

You can register for the Brisbane event this May.

There are many ways to join in the fun and be part of Australia’s biggest charity fun run.  Most people will participate in the 4.5km and 8km run or walk, starting and finishing at the Cultural Forecourt, the Parklands South Bank. If running and/or walking isn’t your thing you can still join in the fun of the day by volunteering to help out.

Alternatively, you can come along and support all walkers and runners and join in the entertainment and activity taking place around the course.

If running and walking isn’t your thing you can still join in the fun of the day by volunteering to help out.

If you wish to make a stand alone donation to the Mother’s Day Classic for breast cancer research, you can do so from our website and find out more about Sheree’s fundraising efforts in 2012 and 2013 at the Mother’s Day Classic website
