Mother’s Day Classic

The Task 

A cause close to our hearts; we have been supporting the local Mother’s Day Classic, held along the Gippsland Plains Rail Trail, before our business was even established back in 2015.

Run by a volunteer committee; the first local event was in 2014 and has been managed by a group of superwomen with our support on items such as Event Planning, Risk Management, Social Media, and Media Liaison/ Press Releases.

The Mother’s Day Classic is a nation-wide charity fun run for the National Breast Cancer Foundation to help support the fight against breast cancer.

The verdict

Organising a community event has its challenges, especially in small townships. But that is exactly what volunteers have done since 2014 by staging the Toongabbie/Traralgon Mothers Day Classic Event, and Casey Bonacci has been involved since its inception. Casey has volunteered her time and expertise while working in London and in Queensland, but she still managed our Facebook site, the media and promoted the event broadly. The result over the 6 years has been an increase in numbers, which translates to an increase in funds to be donated back to Breast Cancer Research.

Caseys professional approach and knowledge of the local community has had a positive impact in the organisational stages and on the day of the event. Her family, friends and dog always participate on the day which shows her genuine empathy for the importance of raising research funds.

It gives me a great amount of pleasure to recommend Casey to you.
