The streets of Johannesburg and Cape Town will be teaming with activity on National Women’s Day, Tuesday, 09 August 2016 when thousands of runners and walkers toe the line at the much anticipated Totalsports Women’s Race in support of PinkDrive.
A Non-Profit Company (NPC), PinkDrive is committed to improving breast cancer awareness, education, and providing and offering free services to the medically uninsured across South Africa. PinkDrive will be present at the Totalsports Women’s Race both in Johannesburg and Cape Town offering FREE clinical breast examinations and educating on the importance of self- breast examinations.
“The Totalsports Women’s race is the ideal opportunity and platform to celebrate women,” says Febe Meyer, Marketing Manager of PinkDrive. “With both the Johannesburg and Cape Town events taking place on National Women’s Day, the majority of the participants will be women. We are granted an amazing opportunity to salute mothers, grannies, aunties and sisters.”
“The Totalsports Women’s Race is more than just an event, it brings people together,” continues Meyer. “Last year numerous individuals and cancer survivors shared their success stories with us. It was also amazing to see how eager the entrants were to get tested. Our nurses tested a total of 314 participants on the day, referring 7 patients for further testing. We are honoured to be the official beneficiary of the Totalsports Women’s Race in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town. The funds donated to PinkDrive assist us in keeping our current mobile unit fleet on the road.”
“Exercise is just as important as an appropriate and suitable diet. Movement is one of the essential elements to get the lymph system going, strengthening bones and muscles. It is a known fact that ‘feel good endorphins’ released through exercise, aid in a positive state of mind which is vital for every cancer Survivor’s individual plan to cope with her diagnosis and possibly the route to recovery. The Totalsports Women’s Race adds both a fun and social element to exercise, while supporting PinkDrive’s message that ‘early detection saves lives’. We are proud to be affiliated with this inspirational event and can’t wait to catch up with old friends and make new friends on National Women’s Day.”
