Mother’s Day Clas­sic back for an­other year in pink

Style Magazine - - Community -

OVER 18,000 women will be di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer in 2018, Can­cer Aus­tralia es­ti­mates.

This is a sober­ing 13 per cent of all new can­cer cases to be di­ag­nosed this year.

While the chance of sur­viv­ing breast can­cer is very pos­i­tive (90 per cent), it is some­thing no per­son wants to go through — and we still don’t know what causes it.

So, this Mother’s Day, why not cel­e­brate your mother while join­ing with other Toowoomba res­i­dents in rais­ing funds for breast can­cer re­search?

The Mother’s Day Clas­sic is a fun run and walk start­ing at Queens Park.

This com­mu­nity-based event en­cour­ages the na­tion to come to­gether to re­mem­ber, cel­e­brate, and hon­our those touched by breast can­cer.

Our event in Toowoomba is in its sixth year, with a 3km walk and 5km run.

Prams and chil­dren on scoot­ers are wel­come, so why not bring the whole fam­ily? Even the fam­ily pup can come along, pro­vided they are on a leash and muz­zled due to the large amount of peo­ple around.

En­try fees are $20-$25 for adults and $10-$15 for chil­dren or con­ces­sion, with book­ing on­line prior to the day re­ceiv­ing re­duced rates.
