What started as a spontaneous decision by one of our team members to join the Mother’s Day Classic, ended with 20 participants, Glad employees and their families, registering for the run and walk.
With some driven by their personal stories and others supporting them, it was a beautiful experience of remembrance, awareness and appreciation for all in the Glad Family and a wonderful way to spend Mother’s Day. As always Glad Group was there to support this initiative and help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.
According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, it is estimated that in 2016 the risk of an individual being diagnosed with breast cancer by their 85th birthday will be 1 in 16 (1 in 719 males and 1 in 8 females). The Mother’s Day Classic is an annual fun run and walk raising funds and awareness for breast cancer research. All proceeds are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation which supports research into breast cancer prevention and treatment.
Thank you to everyone from Glad that participated and we look forward to a bigger team in 2017.
