Booby Tuesday

Partner with PinkDrive on Booby Tuesday the last Tuesday of every month to “Go Pink” and raise awareness and funds to provide free breast cancer screenings to disadvantaged women in South Africa. All funds raised will contribute to keep our Mobile Mammography Trucks on the road to provide FREE cancer screening services to communities.

Macsteel has kicked off our Corporate Challenge with a R50 000 donation. They have put out the challenge to all other corporates to match or beat this amount!

For every R50 000 donated by a corporate, we will send our Mobile Screening Unit to their Staff or a Community in need.

We have a range of Pink and Blue supporter accessories and apparel for you to show your support for PinkDrive and More Balls Than Most!


Ways To Give

Together we can raise more funds, build more mobile units and save more lives!

South Africa´s best-loved Breast Cancer Community Carer, PinkDrive is the indispensable, tangible breast cancer Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) powering South Africa´s first mobile PinkDrive Mammography Unit and PinkDrive Educational Unit through our country, driving home the fact that `Early Detection Will Help Prolong A Life´.

PinkDrive On The Move

Follow our Mobile Health Units as we travel across South Africa, taking much needed health services to citizens without access to reasonable healthcare who reside in areas where health services do not reach, with the message “Early detection will help to prolong a life.”

About PinkDrive

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. It’s 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. It’s posture is ostensibly a promoter of health awareness in general, and specifically health education and heightening awareness of gender-related cancers in South Africa.
