The vast majority of the people who help to put together the Mother's Day Classic are volunteers. They give their time each year as a way of actively contributing to the fight against breast cancer.
This initiative was inspired by the knowledge that research is gradually improving the survival rate of the one in nine women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their life.
Improving the quality of life of those with breast cancer is a valuable and rewarding investment into our community.
Where does the money raised go?
All proceeds from the Mother's Day Classic are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation , a not for profit organisation that promotes and supports research into breast cancer prevention and treatment.
This money has enabled four major research scholarships to be undertaken. If you would like to make a donation please click here for more details.
