Pink Power Rules – 2016 Mother’s Day Classic Kicks Off In Ballina

mothers days 2015_7011It can definitely be said that PINK POWER RULES after the success of the 2015 Mother’s Day Classic that saw more than 130,000 people around the country responsible for raising $3.1 million for breast cancer research.

The Ballina event, now in its fourth year, takes the RULE OF PINK POWER seriously as the organisers envisage another Mother’s Day where the foreshores of Missingham Bridge, Shaws Bay and the North Wall are transformed into a sea of fuschia.

The Mother’s Day Classic involves Australians of all ages walking or running to raise money for breast cancer research and honour those who have faced the disease.

“One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime and while registration fees assist funding new research into the prevention and cure for breast cancer, every extra dollar will assist the Mother’s Day Classic to raise even more funds for life-saving research.  Participants are therefore encouraged to set up an online fundraising page where family and friends can sponsor their involvement in the event,” said Jo Parker, organiser of the Ballina event.

“The Mother’s Day Classic is about coming together as a community and enjoying the spirit of doing something worthwhile for breast cancer … and it’s a fabulous way to kick-start Mother’s Day whether you participate as a family, with a group of friends or a sports, school or work team,” continued Jo.

Besides the important aspect of raising funds and awareness for breast cancer research, the Mother’s Day Classic is a fun and healthy family outing with the Ballina event specifically welcoming of our four-legged friends on their leads for a small gold coin donation entry fee.

Online registration is now open – at:  www.mothersdayclassic.com.au
Participants are encouraged to register online prior to Wednesday 4 May as on-the-day registration fees will increase and a reminder that there are great prizes on offer for best dressed male, female, child & pooch.
