The Mother’s Day Classic is an annual fun run/walk which is a popular, national community event that donates its fundraising to Breast Cancer research.

2013 marked the inaugural event in Ballina with 162 participants which increased to just over 400 in 2014 as it establishes itself as a regular annual charity event on the calendar of local residents.

To assist with our fundraising efforts, this year a ladies movie night will be held on Tuesday April 21 at the Ballina Cinemas. Tickets are $20 which includes a glass of champagne and canapes at 6.30pm, followed by the movie – The Age of Adaline, starring Blake Lively and Harrison Ford, commencing at 7pm.

Pre-purchase of tickets is recommended. Contact Jo on 0413 676 136.

Online registrations for the 2015 Ballina Mother’s Day Classic are NOW OPEN at:
