Five super funds and ACSI are leading the charge in the Mother’s Day Classic Boardroom Challenge, with 12 days left to go before the race.
The challenge calls on captains of industry to lead the way with fundraising for breast cancer research, and in a sector where competition to bring good to others is daily part of the job it is no surprise to see super funds throwing their support behind the event.
The six superannuation front runners are: Cbus, NGS Super, CareSuper, the Australian Council of Superannuation Investors (ACSI), UniSuper and MTAA.
The sector as a whole is currently besting all others.

In a bid to lead – Cbus is getting lonely out front – Julie Lander, chief executive of CareSuper, has said: “If my Boardroom Challenge effort raises $5000 or more, I’ll walk the entire course of the 4km Melbourne Mother’s Day Classic in a head-to-toe pink outfit – including a hot pink wig and fluffy slippers!”
Founded in 1998 by titan of the superannuation industry, the late Mavis Robertson, the Mother’s Day Classic fun-run and walk exists to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research and has raised $24.3 million.
