The Mother’s Day Classic: We Did It!

Around the country yesterday there was a sea of pink as thousands of people joined in the Mother’s Day Classic, to raise money for research by the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Our 12WBT team was on the ground in Melbourne, Brissy, Sydney and Canberra to spread the 12WBT love and meet the crowds of pink. It was so great to see so many of you from our running programs get involved and reach your running goals at this event!

In Sydney Mish was there leading the charge and warming up the crowd pre-race. The 12WBT tent was rocking as she ran a series of fitness challenges and got to do what she absolutely loves – meet her 12WBTers!

The Dermalogica girls were a huge hit in Sydney, with a hydration station, hand treatments for mums, face mapping and mini treatments etc to pamper mum on the day.

The TANITA body composition measuring proved very popular! We had the latest TANITA BC-582 Body Composition Monitors onsite. It’s a nifty device that uses the latest technology to measure weight, body fat percentage, muscle mass, metabolic age and loads more. We had some very surprising results, including two Sydney ladies in their mid-40s who were VERY pleased to find out they in fact had the body composition of 25 year olds! Find out more or purchase the TANITA scales in the 12WBT Shop.

It was a wonderful chance for our team to connect with so many of our members, new and old. A big thanks to all our AMAZING 12WBT volunteers who gave up their Mother’s Day morning to be part of this great cause.
