Mother’s Day is said to be over but it is closely linked to breast cancer fund raising activities to raise awareness and to support those inflicted. This is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women, affecting one in seven women in their lifetime.
Some of the events and activities that raise funds for cancer research on Mother’s Day are:
- Mother’s Day Classic, which is a series of fun runs and walks held in various locations across Australia. Since 1998, more than $40 million has been raised from this event for the NBCF.
- Mother’s Day 5K Run/Walk, which is a similar event held in Peculiar, Missouri, USA. The proceeds from this event go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
More On Breast Cancer Awareness
- Shop Pink, which is a program that features products from partner brands that donate a portion of their sales to BCRF. Some of the products include jewelry, clothing, beauty products, and home accessories.
- Breast Cancer NT Ambassador, which is a role that involves sharing personal stories of breast cancer survivors and raising awareness and funds for NBCF. One of the ambassadors is Kaleena Slaviero, who was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer at 32 and underwent intensive treatment.
