The largest continually run motoring event in the world, the iconic Bay to Birdwood, is this year going pink yellow and blue to support the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation.

Held on Sunday 25 September 2011, the Bay to Birdwood Classic is for motor vehicles manufactured from 1 Jan 1956 to 31 Dec 1977.  Starting from Adelaide Shores, Barratt Reserve, West Beach at 9am event follows a route through metropolitan Adelaide to the finish at the National Motor Museum, Birdwood in the Adelaide Hills.  Each event sees up to 100,000 spectators lining the streets along the 70 km route.

This year, the Bay to Birdwood Classic has partnered with the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation to raise funds for the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer incorporating the LIVESTRONG Cancer Research Centre. 

The theme of pinkyellowblue is being embraced by the Bay to Birdwood in an effort to raise money for womens (pink), mens (blue) and all cancers (yellow) and supporters of the event are being encouraged to pre-order “sash packs‟ or purchase them on the day to decorate themselves and their cars to visually represent the cause.

”We are thrilled to become a charity partner of the Bay to Birdwood,” Deborah Heithersay, CEO of the FMC Foundation, said. “The event holds a special place in the hearts of many South Australians, and we are calling on their generosity and creativity to turn this year’s event pink yellow and blue to help raise much needed funds for and awareness of the vital cancer research which takes place at Flinders.”

You can purchase sash packs for $10 from the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation by telephoning (08) 8204 5216 or emailing foundation@health.sa.gov.au.  Packs will also be available for sale at Barratt Reserve at the start of the event, and $7 from every $10 pack will support cancer research.
