The Red Army turns pink!

The Perth Wildcats are calling on the Red Army to turn pink for the Mother’s Day Classic.

On Sunday 14 May, the Perth Mother’s Day Classic returns to the Supreme Court Gardens for the annual fun run, raising money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.

The subject hits close to home for Perth Wildcats head coach Trevor Gleeson and his wife Dawn, who was recently informed that her breast cancer had recurred.

“We want to spread awareness for how important early detection is,” said Dawn Gleeson.

“I want to invite everyone to join us on Mother’s Day in support of raising funds for breast cancer awareness.”

“We want the Red Army to join ‘Dawn’s Dream Team’, and help it become the biggest team in WA.”

This year, Trevor Gleeson continues his role as WA ambassador for the event, while Dawn Gleeson has previously sat on the Mother’s Day Classic committee.

Participants of all ages can chose from a 4km or 8km course, with proceeds going towards supporting NBCF research projects, seeking better detection and prevention methods, treatment options and ways to improve the quality of life for survivors.

To register, go to mothersdayclassic.com.au and search ‘Dawn’s Dream Team’ to join your fellow Red Army members in supporting Dawn Gleeson.
