Stellenbosch (South Africa) – A sea of pink will engulf the streets of Stellenbosch on Monday, 10 August 2015 when thousands of women toe the line in Plein Street to ‘Run Their City’ at the annual Totalsports Women’s Race in support of PinkDrive.
Taking place the day after National Women’s Day, the Totalsports Women’s Race supports PinkDrive, a Non-Profit Company (NPC) that is committed to improving breast cancer awareness, education, and providing and offering services to women across South Africa.
“The Totalsports Women’s Race gives PinkDrive the perfect platform to create awareness and educate participants regarding breast cancer and the importance of ‘early detection’,” says Noelene Kotschan, PinkDrive Founder and CEO. “We absolutely love the idea that the Totalsports Women’s Race will take place in Durban, Johannesburg and Stellenbosch. This gives us the opportunity to expand our reach and interact with different audiences in the different cities. Our medical staff will be on hand to do clinical breast examinations; a PinkDrive representative will do a mass educational talk, while cancer survivor Piliswa Mazikwana will share her story”.
Other free services offered by PinkDrive include: education on women’s health, mammograms, pap smears and clinical examinations as well as how to do breast self-examinations. Look out for the pink “Shop4Cancer” at the Totalsports Women’s Race in Stellenbosch. Participants are encouraged to “pimp” themselves Pink”.
