Gippsland East Nationals MP, Tim Bull, is encouraging fellow local residents to join him in participating in this year’s Bairnsdale Mother’s Day Classic.
“As an annual participant of the Mother’s Day Classic, I know it will again be a great day out for Mum and the entire family, with running and walking events at varying lengths, so I encourage others to join me,” Mr Bull said.
“This Sunday marks the 10th year of the Classic, which has raised thousands of dollars for the National Breast Cancer Foundation,” Mr Bull said.
Mr Bull said the event kicks off at 10am, with the six-kilometre walk and 10km run leaving the Howitt Park pavilion and taking in popular walking tracks along the Mitchell River and others in Eastwood. Those who have not yet registered online should arrive before 8.30am.
Mr Bull congratulated the Bairnsdale Apex Club for organising the event over the years.
“The club has done a fantastic job running the Mother’s Day Classic and they deserve the support of local residents, especially in its 10th year,” he said.
“There will also be food and drinks available before and after the event, along with some great raffle prizes donated by local businesses.”
