The Middleton Beach foreshore was flooded by a sea of pink on Sunday as participants geared up to celebrate Mother’s Day in an Albany first.
BodyCare Health Club hosted the inaugural Mother’s Day Classic run to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research.
Participants dressed in pink for the 5km or 10km walk or run from Middleton Beach to Emu Point.
Mothers, families and friends came together to remember those who had been affected by breast cancer in some way.
The first of many fundraisers
BodyCare Events Manager Pam Russell said the event was a great way to bring people together on Mother’s Day and raise vital funds.
“It was to basically get active and remember those who may be still fighting, lost their lives or who have recovered from breast cancer,” she said.
“This was the first for Albany and hopefully the first of many, we hope to run it forever.”
All of the funds raised on the day were donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
