Get your fun on with a walk or run this Mother’s Day morning!
The Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic is Australia’s largest fun run and walk for breast cancer research. Since the event’s inception in 1998, the Mother’s Day Classic community has donated $41.45 million to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) to fund life-saving breast cancer research.
We support the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s goal of zero deaths from breast cancer. Everyone who participates in the Mother’s Day Classic is helping to fund essential research that will improve the lives of anyone touched by breast cancer.
So, lace up those runners and throw on your pink tracksuit for the 2023 Women in Super Tin Can Bay Mother’s Day Classic on Sunday 14 May, with a return run or walk from Wes Mitchell Park to Crab Creek and back.
On the day registrations are available from 8am at the sign-on tent in Wes Mitchell Park and the official welcome will be at 8.50am including a minute’s silence, with the Classic kicking off at 9am.
For more information email event organiser Jess Milne at email@example.com or call 0411 218 254. You can pre-register at www.mothersdayclassic.com.au by going to Events, Queensland, and click on Tin Can Bay. There are medallions to the first 40 who register either online or on the day.
