CareSuper joins Women in Super in fight against breast cancer for 13th year, sponsoring the Mother’s Day Classic
Melbourne, 27 April 2021: CareSuper is proud to be sponsoring the annual Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic fun run/walk for the 13th year in a row, as a National Silver sponsor.
As one of Australia’s largest national charity events, the Mother’s Day Classic raises vital funds for life-saving breast cancer research, needed to help improve the lives of the 57 Australians diagnosed with breast cancer each day.
In 2021, the Mother’s Day Classic is going local, inviting registered participants to walk or run at various locations across Australia in a COVID-safe way on Mother’s Day, Sunday 9 May 2021. Many participants will also host fundraising events throughout April and May.
In addition to sponsoring the event, CareSuper’s CEO Julie Lander is taking part in the Corporate Challenge for the seventh year in a row, having raised over $100,000 for the Foundation to date.
Commenting on the event, Julie said “This year marks my seventh Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic Corporate Challenge. Although things are a little different in 2021, I’m still determined to do my bit and have fun with fundraising events and pranks – all socially distanced of course!
I am passionate about supporting life-saving breast cancer research and recognise we still have a long way to go to stop breast cancer deaths. Each year I’m inspired by the effort that goes into hosting this fantastic event and hopefully by doing my small part I can encourage more people to donate, sign up and participate.”
CareSuper is committed to supporting the Mother’s Day Classic again this year and is inviting Australians across the country to join in and get active to support the eradication of breast cancer this Mother’s Day.
As part of its Mother’s Day Classic fundraising activity, the fund is offering a $500 Lululemon gift card, giving members and non-members a chance to refresh their workout wardrobes. The competition closes on 9 May 2021.
Zara Lawless, Mother’s Day Classic CEO said “There are so many ways to get involved with the Mother’s Day Classic in 2021. Due to on-going COVID related restrictions we’re not able to host large scale major events as we’ve done in the past. Instead we’re encouraging supporters to set their own distance and activity goals and take part in community focused activities in their local area.
The Mother’s Day Classic Local 2021 is a fun way to get active in your own way in your community, with friends, families, gym buddies or even a furry friend, for a good cause. The Mother’s Day Classic Foundation is proud, over the last 24 years, to be the largest single donor to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). NBCF is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research and doesn’t receive any government funding. Their game-changing breast cancer research is made possible by the generous Australian public and superstar sponsors like CareSuper.
NBCF’s mission is to stop deaths from breast cancer, and the Mother’s Day Classic is grateful to CareSuper for helping us get closer to achieving our goal.”
Proceeds from the Mother’s Day Classic Local 2021 will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
NBCF identifies, funds and champions world class research which helps detect cancer tumours earlier, improve treatment outcomes and ultimately save lives. Almost $38 million has been donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation since the first Mother’s Day Classic event in 1998.
