Join Team MONASH at the 2020 Mothers Day Classic - Virtual event!
At the same time as getting some well needed exercise in this time of ISO, you will be proving that the #Monashspirit is indeed alive and well, and unbroken by COVID 19.
In 2005, Monash University entered a team into the Mother's Day Classic for the first time. We did it to bring the University Community together in a way that no other University had done before, and that is why we're doing it again in 2020!
As an incentive to keep you motivated, we have some great things on offer including:
Location: Your backyard, your lounge room, around your block, around your local sports oval! (As long as it qualifies under government social distancing regulations!)
Date: On or before Sunday May 10, 2020
How much: Adults $25 or $45, children $20, children under 4 are free
Since 1998, the Mother’s Day Classic has raised over $37 million and funded 70 breast cancer research projects across Australia. Research has made a real impact over the last 22 years with survival rates increasing. But there is still more work to be done as eight women – our mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and friends – are still losing their lives to breast cancer each day.
The Mother’s Day Classic raises funds through community and online fundraising, donations and registration fees. With 53 women still diagnosed every single day, we need your help now more than ever. Research is the only way that we can understand more about the cause and development of breast cancer.
Proceeds go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) who have funded over 534 research projects to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.

Given the challenging times we are experiencing, we want to take this opportunity to provide a healthy distraction, motivation to be part of something bigger than the individual and a reason for you to be a part of something special. This event also raises funds for a very worthy cause and is an event that you can get your families involved in too.
