Birds of a feather...

THE saying, birds of a feather flock together couldn't be truer for the staff at birdsnest who are banding together this mother's day to take part in the Mother's Day Classic.

About 15 staff will put on their running shoes and flock to Jindabyne on May 12 to take part in the five kilometre fun run, or three kilometre walk, to raise money for breast cancer research.

They even have their own headbands being made up with the birdsnest bird logo wearing running shoes that they will wear on the day.

The girls will be joined by their partners, children, friends and mothers to make a difference on Mother's Day and taking steps to save lives by helping fund breast cancer research.

The statement on the birdsnest fundraising page sums it up, "One of our cultural values at birdsnest is "One Flock".

We work with each other and with our customers as a team - as Ben Lee so beautifully sings, 'We are all in this together.'

We realise that breast cancer affects us all and that by entering the Mother's Day Classic, we have a chance to do something not just for ourselves, but for the benefit of all women, for all our flock."

More than 120,000 people will take part in the Mother's Day Classic nationwide at 74 locations including all capital cities, major metropolitans and 63 regional locations across Australia.

Bronnie Taylor, Acting Director of Cancer Service for the Southern Area Health Network and McGrath Breast Care Nurse and Deputy Mayor of Cooma Shire Council, said the Mother's Day Classic was a fantastic event.

"More than $10.8 million has been raised for the National Breast Cancer Foundation' s research programs since the event's inception and we are proud to host an event in the Snowy Mountains and raise extra funds to help find a cure for breast cancer," she said.

The Snowy Mountains Mother's Day Classic 5 km Fun Run at Lake Jindabyne will start at 10.30am and the 3km walk will start at 11am at the Stage area, Clay Pits Lake Jindabyne (Barry Way roundabout) on Sunday May 12.

From 9.30am until 2pm Market stalls, entertainment, music, dancing, jumping castle and more combined with the Walk and Run will make it a fantastic day out for the whole family.
