2020 Mother's Day Classic - virtual event

Unprecedented times call for innovative solutions! 

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:

  • the first 100 registrations with Team MONASH will receive a FREE #MonashSpirit tshirt!
  • our great friends at Monash Sport are providing all students, staff and alumni who sign up with Team MONASH a FREE 2 week gym membership, once they open up again for business! 
  • there will be a number of random prizes available through our social media platforms before and during the event!

So on Sunday May 10th 2020, be part of something special and join Team MONASH as we have fun together participating in the 2020 Mothers Day Classic!

Event charity

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.
