Cricket is one of the most popular sports in South Africa so what better way to raise money for cancer than at a cricket match?

Relate Bracelets will once again partner with the Pink Drive for their annual One Day International (ODI) event on 4 February to celebrate World Cancer Day. The event, which is in its fifth year now, aims to raise R1 million.

Relate bracelets are handmade and sold to make a difference and change lives by donating the majority of their revenue to credible causes and invest in social upliftment initiatives, with a focus on creating opportunities for all involved, at every stage of a project.

The organisation has already raised R367 072 for the PinkDrive so far and aims to double that amount this year.

“Events like this help spread the message that early detection and preventative measures save lives,”

Nolene Kotschan, CEO of PinkDrive said in a statement.

The ODI event will place on the third Momentum One-Day International against Sri Lanka at Bidvest Wanderers Stadium.

Even though the PinkDrive Relate Bracelets have already been sold to corporate boxes leading up to the event, the bracelets will be for sale to the public on the day of the event through roaming vendors at the venue who will reportedly aim to sell 5 000 at a cost of R50 each and raise a further R55 000.

Relate Bracelets can also be ordered from their online shop.
