Classic event to raise funds

Mount Gambier’s famed Blue Lake will be the site of a fundraising event in May – joining in with events around the country.

Registrations have opened for the Mother’s Day Classic breast cancer fundraiser, which this year will feature the Blue Lake as the local location.

The Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic will bring the community together in true fashion for the 25th anniversary of the Australian event on May 8.  

Tens of thousands of people will unite for the Mother’s Day Classic to celebrate and honour those affected by breast cancer and raise vital funds for research. There will be up to 70 event locations nationwide where supporters can walk, run or jog for the cause on Mother’s Day. 

Mother’s Day Classic chief executive Zara Lawless said almost 1.5 million Australians have participated in the Mother’s Day Classic over the past 24 years, making it Australia’s largest fun run and walk for breast cancer research. 

“The MDC community should be very proud of this important milestone which marks 25 years of impact,” she said.

“The MDC has grown quite literally from a walk in the park to an iconic event in the Australian calendar. Since it all began in 1998, the Mother’s Day Classic Foundation has donated nearly $40m to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to fund life-saving breast cancer research.” 

 Ms Lawless said after two challenging years, the Mother’s Day Classic was ready to deliver a fun and inspiring event experience. 

“To keep participants and volunteers safe, MDC is implementing COVID-safe measures and will be guided by the vaccination requirements and health and safety guidelines as determined by each state’s government authority,” she said.
