Brisbanites laced up their running shoes to celebrate the achievements of women and girls throughout the decades on Sunday 8 March.
The race — which weaved through a picturesque five kilometre circuit that started at South Bank’s Cultural Forecourt, crossed the Victoria Bridge and finished up near the Wheel of Brisbane — took place on International Women’s Day, and raised much-needed funds for women with breast cancer through Mater Chicks In Pink.
“Mater Chicks In Pink is about supporting women in a very tangible way,” said Lesley Ray, the Mater Foundation’s Executive Director of Fundraising, “such as providing a prosthetic bra for every woman who has undergone a mastectomy, hair pieces for women who have lost their hair during chemotherapy, art therapy classes which care considered to be a way for women to express themselves, yoga classes and quick response financial support.”
Breast cancer is still the most common cancer affecting Australian women, and seven women still lose their battle with breast cancer every day.
