A sea of pink for Mother’s Day classic
A record number of participants, many dressed in pink, turned out early on Sunday morning for the second annual Karratha Mother’s Day Classic charity run.
More than 440 people ran, walked or pushed prams around the course – a figure well up on last year’s 200 participants.
All money raised was donated to breast cancer research. Mother’s Day Classic Karratha committee co-chairwoman Jennifer Hill said the event had received a lot of support from local businesses and individuals.
“It’s a bigger turnout than last year and it is great to see a sea of pink – a lot of people got behind it,” she said.
Ms Hill said it was a very important day for many women and it was great to see numbers growing each year. “It’s the community getting behind a great cause, I think unfortunately everyone knows someone that has, or has had, breast cancer and this is just a great way for everyone to get down, show their support and raise some money,” she said.
Participant’s wound down after the early morning exercise with a sausage sizzle, coffee and some special pink cupcakes.
