The ladies from our ‘Organised Crew’ joined the sea of tens of thousands of Australians who came together in a sea of pink, raising awareness and funds for breast cancer research during the Mother’s Day Classic walk on 8 May.
Martha, Kathy, Fiona, Kathy, Michelle and Franca from the Operations Admin support team took part in the 4km event around Melbourne’s The Tan track, finishing in Alexandra Gardens.
The ‘Organised Crew’ as they dubbed themselves, signed up for the event “as part of our Admin team’s health and wellbeing, coming out of a tough 2 years of COVID,” said Martha.
“The event ticked all the boxes. We could get outside of the work environment, get to know each other in a more casual setting and enjoy fundraising for a good cause at the same time,” said Martha.
The conditions on Mother’s Day were perfect for an enjoyable walk!
“It was a lovely, mild and overcast day. The mood from the crowd was electric.”
“We walked at a steady pace and it took us around 45 minutes all up [to complete the track]. Some of us went home to continue their Mother’s Day celebrations and the rest went for lunch together and out shopping.”
“It was a great day, resulting in a closer Admin support team!” said Martha.
Congratulations on your participation in the event ladies and for your contribution to vital breast cancer research!
