PINK DRIVE SAVES LIVES
The Pick n Pay Marathon supports PinkDrive
, a not-for-profit organisation providing breast-cancer screening and education to women
around the country. PinkDrive
currently operates two ‘Pink’ mobile breast-check units which bring professional clinical breast examinations and breast-health education to semi-urban communities.
More PinkDrive Mobile Clinics = More Early Detections
mobile units come with qualified Mammographers and fully trained nurses and will soon be joined by cervical cancer specialists, expanding the screening tests to facilitate and promote more comprehensive early detection. Your fundraising helps us buy
and maintain more of these units reaching more people in more places.
To date PinkDrive
have given over 9000 free mammograms, 120 000 clinical breast examinations and delivered lifesaving education to over 175, 000 women and girls. Thanks to the generosity of PnP and the thousands of marathon participants, PinkDrive
are playing a valuable role in expanding cancer awareness and early detection to South Africa’s women.
