Mother’s Day Classic donates $2.5m to Breast Cancer Research

We at Spark Event Group are so proud to be an event partner of the Mother’s Day Classic. Especially since the recent announcement that in 2023, over 65,000 Australians came together to donate $2.55M to breast cancer research! The Mother’s Day Classic Foundation’s community is proud that since it began in 1998, the 5 year relative survival rate for breast cancer has increased from 84% to 92%.

“This year 65,000 Australians in 73 locations across the country started their Mother’s Day with purpose, walking or running to support and honour those touched by breast cancer.” said Mother’s Day Classic CEO, Zara Lawless. “The outpouring of support and generosity from participants and donors was inspirational, and the donation is a culmination of the hope, joy, strength and passion that embodies the Mother’s Day Classic.”

In 2023, the Mother’s Day Classic recorded incredible growth, with participation up 30 per cent on 2022 and the donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation up 70 per cent, the largest donation since 2017.

In 2024, the Mother’s Day Classic will expand its reach and impact by offering participants the opportunity to take part and fundraise in support of ovarian cancer research, in addition to breast cancer research, and we at Spark Event Group can’t wait to get started on the event!
