[Music] 

A baby’s bedroom, a young mother is lying on her back with her baby, softly singing to him. 

A backyard at dusk with twinkle lights.  We see a bride on her wedding day. She kisses her partner’s hand gently.  The two women lean in and their foreheads touch. 

Hands folding pizza dough.  A mother and her teenage son, both in aprons. The mother watches and smiles as her son shapes the dough.  

Two women, neighbours, sit on a front porch as they share coffee, stories, and a laugh. 

Two women in a car, singing out loud to music on the radio, smiling and laughing. 

A man and woman lying on the grass, her head on his chest as they smile at each other. 

A grandmother plants a huge kiss on the cheek of her young granddaughter.  

A tearful moment between a mother and her adult son as they sit on a sofa. She just told him she has breast cancer. They embrace. 

WORDS ON SCREEN: 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer 

The same mother and adult son are hugging on Run Day. They gently pull away from each other smiling. 

WORDS ON SCREEN: This is why we run 

The same faces from the opening scenes are now wearing event t-shirts getting ready to take part in the Run. 

WORDS ON SCREEN: We run today to save lives tomorrow 

Runners and walkers move past the screen as they take part in the event.
