Organisers of the annual Mother's Day Classic - a nationwide fun run that raises money for breast cancer research - have revealed the total amount of money that was raised during this year's charity event, which took place in May.
The 125,000 participants from over 50 different locations around the country managed to collect an impressive $4 million for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
This is one million more than was raised last year and brings the cumulative total to $14.8 million.
Louise Davidson, the national chair of the classic, said that she is very pleased with the final results.
"I am absolutely delighted that we could raise such a substantial sum for the life saving work undertaken by the NBCF," she said.
The charity event has been running since 1998 - and since the beginning, the survival rate of those diagnosed with breast cancer has increased to 85 per cent.
Ms Davidson also explained that the organisers had begun to plan next year's event - during which they hope to once again improve on their annual fundraising total.
"Work has already started on the 2013 Mother's Day Classic, with hopes to again raise a new record for vital research," she added.
