Gearing up to walk all over cancer

PREPARATIONS are gearing up for the annual Super Mother’s Day Classic (MDC), which will see more than 100,000 people from across the nation unite to “walk all over cancer.”

Held on Sunday 14 May, event participants will run or walk four or eight-kilometres around the Hobart Queens Domain to raise vital funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

MDC chief executive officer Sharon Morris said the fundraising event was “no average fun run.”

“It is a powerful day for families and friends to support breast cancer survivors and those who have lost loved ones to the disease,” she said.

“The MDC is not about breaking speed records – our focus is on participation, whether you walk, run or volunteer.

“Many people also enjoy dressing up and you’ll see everything from pink pirates to teams in tutus.”

Ms Morris said the focus for the MDC’s 20th anniversary would be one of celebration.

“We want to celebrate the enormous contribution MDC has made to breast cancer research, raising more than $30 million to help keep the best and brightest breast cancer research minds in Australia,” she said.

“Reaching our 20th year is an amazing achievement and is a testament to everyone who has attended the event, volunteered or worked for MDC over the years.”
