Mothers Day

Queensland Urban Utilities will be keeping everyone hydrated at the Mother’s Day Classic on Sunday, May 12 (Mother’s Day) at South Bank Parklands.

We’ll be cheering from the sidelines and operating three water stations across the 4.5km and 8km courses which loop through South Brisbane and West End.

Queensland Urban Utilities spokesperson Michelle Cull said the team in green would be ensuring the thousands of participants keep their fluids up.

“We’re encouraging all runners and walkers to carry a reusable water bottle and refill it at our water stations,” she said.

“Single-use plastic water bottles are a common item of rubbish left behind at large-scale events.

“Filling up on tap water is a simple, reliable and cost-effective way to stay hydrated and help the environment.”

The Mother’s Day Classic is Australia’s largest breast cancer research fundraiser.

“Queensland Urban Utilities is proud to support this event for the fifth year running. Not only is it a great family fun day, but it raises essential funds for research into the prevention and treatment of breast cancer,” Ms Cull said.
