Press release: Totalsports Ladies Race Supports Pink Drive



The Pink Drive logoReturning to Johannesburg and Stellenbosch on National Women’s Day (09 August 2013), the much-loved Totalsports Ladies Race will once again show its support of PinkDrive, a campaign that is committed to promoting breast cancer awareness and providing breast health education and services to men and women across South Africa.

“August is the month for celebrating womanhood and the Totalsports Ladies Race embodies this as well as many of the principles that PinkDrive stands for: femininity, strength, determination and bravery. This is the second year that the Totalsports Ladies Race has chosen PinkDrive as the beneficiary of this event and it is an honour to be chosen as a beneficiary for these events and we appreciate their support. Every cent received will help PinkDrive in its mission to provide much-needed medical services to men and women across the country,” says Noelene Kotschan, PinkDrive Director and Founder.

“PinkDrive would like to encourage participants and those who support them – families and friends – to promote breast cancer awareness,” continues Kotschan.  “It is important that both men and women be aware of changes in their bodies. This will ensure early detection and early treatment. We wish to thank all the women who will be walking or running at the Totalsports Ladies Races in Stellenbosch and Johannesburg, their support means so much to us and every person involved helps spread the message that “Early Detection Saves Lives”.  Although we won’t be running on the day, we will be there to create awareness of the campaign, as well as offering free clinical breast examinations”.
