Cummins Mothers Day Classic

THE Cummins community rallied together to raise $3800 for the town’s first Mother’s Day Classic with all proceeds going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

More than 250 people enjoyed the morning with 190 registered walkers who chose to participate in either a two or four kilometre walk the around town.

The large group of walkers was welcomed and held a minute's silence to support those going through or those who had been through breast cancer treatment and to remember those who had died.

The walk kicked off at 9am with a sea of pink including families with lots of prams, scooters and children on bikes.

Event organiser Sophie Blacker said the event volunteers were overwhelmed with the scale of community support.

"It was such a lovely way to begin Mother's Day and raise money for breast cancer fundraising,” she said.

Ms Blacker said the amount raised far exceeded her expectations and the event was a resounding success for the community. 

"I would really like to give a heartfelt thanks to the group of amazing volunteers and contributors and a big thank you to everyone who joined in and supported our first ever Mother's Day Classic in Cummins,” Ms Blacker said.

Along with the walk and breakfast, people enjoyed pink cupcakes and pink ribbon biscuits, coffee, face painting and balloons for children. 

It was the 20th Mother's Day Classic held nationally with 92 events taking place nationwide on Sunday, and Cummins just one of six events in South Australia.​
