In the lead up to Mother’s Day, Melbourne City FC alongside partners, This Girl Can and Soccer Mums – initiatives of VicHealth – will be taking part in the Mother’s Day Classic Virtual 2020 event to raise vital funds for life-saving breast cancer research.
Now more than ever it’s important to keep physically active and healthy, so we’re encouraging our staff, players and supporters to walk or run between 4 to 8km in their local parks, on the running track or in the street before Mother’s Day on Sunday 10 May.
Not only can you keep yourself physically active, but you can do so while raising much-needed funds for Breast Cancer Research.
City stars Kyah Simon, Curtis Good and Melissa Barbieri are joining the Club’s staff and representatives from This Girl Can and Soccer Mums to play their role, keep active and help raise funds and awareness for The National Breast Cancer Foundation while supporting those who have been affected by breast cancer.
Every day, 53 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and eight women will lose their life to it.
Together, we’re encouraging everyone to please donate now and help researches improve breast cancer detection, develop new treatments and allow people with breast cancer to live longer and better lives.
Or better yet, join our team and walk or run with us! It’s an all-inclusive virtual event, so gather your partner, kids and pets and get active! Please keep in mind social distancing regulations when exercising.
Together let’s do this, we thank you for your support.
