So appropriate and so fitting. Case in point...many human beings diagnosed with breast cancer (unfortunately) are mothers - a mum to at least someone. Then again, any woman (mum or not) can be diagnosed with this traumatic dis-ease. How do I know? My Aunty personally was diagnosed with breast cancer, and to hear her treatment plan was exhausting in itself. Thankfully she is in remission right now.

On the other hand, not many women are that lucky. Thank you to the annual Australian based (definitely held in all of the major Australian capital cities) fun-run event called the Mothers Day Classic.

Raising awareness as to how debilitating this illness is through this event is such an effective message, and one that many people are enrolled in. The Mothers Day Classic is a fun morning out where you're able to appreciate your mum, get fit and raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Then again, good luck comes in threes right?

You can choose from either the 8km or 4km run, or the 4km walk. The starting times are staggered, and there is some free entertainment and stretching sessions in the interim. All finishers receive a pink finishers medal. You can also write a tribute to your mum and/or a loved one who (unfortunately) did or did not survive with breast cancer.

It is rather sad participating in this event on Mothers Day, especially if you hear news that your mother passed away right on Mothers Day. This event can help shake the blues, where some natural grief may endure afterwards.

A highly effective annual fundraising event, held specifically for many mums in mind, and right on Mothers Day. The benefits are diverse, and you feel great at the end, whether you're sponsored through the company you work for to participate, or you participate and pay on your own terms. Having been in the latter two circumstances in the past for this event, I'd say both avenues are liberating.

Cheers to our wonderful mums on Mothers Day.
