Aspiring musicians can now compete for the chance to perform at the 2022 Mother’s Day Classic events in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane on Sunday, May 8. The winners will perform alongside other young Australian entertainers on the day.
“In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Mother’s Day Classic, these performances will entertain, motivate and create a real buzz and atmosphere as participants take to the track and are treated to some great music throughout the morning,” said Zara Lawless, Mother’s Day Classic CEO.
MDC participants will be encouraged to fundraise for the National Breast Cancer Foundation as they walk, run, or perhaps even skip to the beat of the high-energy, uplifting music.
“Through Instagram, we’ll be on the lookout for aspiring artists to showcase their talent to thousands of people and help us to celebrate this important milestone – and what better way to celebrate it than with music,” said Martine Jager, CEO of ME Bank, the event’s major sponsor.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia and sadly, 9 Australians die from it every single day. In the 24-year history of the Mother’s Day Classic, almost $40 million has been donated to fund game-changing breast cancer research.
Ms Jager said that ME Bank are proud of its 18-year partnership with the Mother’s Day Classic. ME’s “pink buck” debit card, through which the bank donates one cent to the National Breast Cancer Foundation every time customers pay with their pink Everyday Transaction Account, has raised over $1.3 million for the National Breast Cancer Foundation to date.
Solo performers or duos can enter the Sing with ME competition by submitting their entry at singwithmebank.com.au. The competition closes on 12/4/22.
