International Women’s Day Fun Run

When: March 4 2018

Where: Brisbane, Australia


<h2>Before we create a sea, you need to make a few waves</h2>

<p>This year, 12 000 women will create the biggest, boldest sea of pink to ever sweep through Brisbane. With every age, fitness level and personality you can imagine taking part, it&rsquo;s going to be quite the party.</p>

<p>The sea of pink is a powerful symbol of support, showing every woman with breast cancer that they are not alone. In fact, there are thousands of women willing to fill the streets to show them support.</p>

<p>And we want you to be among&nbsp;them.&nbsp;</p>
