19 October 2022 – Organisers of the aQuellé Midmar Mile have set the whopping target of R5 million to raise for charity ahead of next year’s 50th anniversary event. Each
PinkDrive NPC, a health sector NGO, was founded in 2009 by Ms. Noelene Kotschan, on the premise that “Early detection will help to prolong a life.” PinkDrive’s cardinal purpose is to contribute meaningfully towards preventing as many people as it can, from succumbing to breast, cervical, prostate and testicular cancer.
Its primary focus is on citizens without access to reasonable care for these conditions, and who reside in areas where health services do not reach.
It recognises that treatable cancers receiving even the basic levels of care, could translate into varying lengths of extended life for the afflicted, when detected and treated early. Its posture is ostensibly a promoter of health awareness in general, and specifically health education and heightening awareness of gender-related cancers in South Africa.
PinkDrive is the most beloved Cancer Community Carer in South Africa as an indispensable, tangible breast cancer Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) it powers South Africa’s first mobile PinkDrive Mammography Unity and PinkDrive Educational Unity throughout the country.
We are incredibly fortunate to have a strong team of swimmers who raise funds through the Charity 8 Mile swims each year at Midmar Mile and look forward to the largest team yet in 2023.
