    Bulls raise R600 000 for CANSA

    2016-05-24 12:17

    Pretoria - The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) partnered with the Vodacom Bulls for a #GetYourPinkOn game against the Cheetahs on April 2, 2016.

    The Bulls were not the only winners that night, when they beat the Cheetahs 23-18, but CANSA also came out tops with over R600 000 raised during this campaign.

    The Bulls wore a special edition pink kit on game day, and encouraged all spectators to do the same. 

    “We feel that once again, the Get Your Pink On campaign was a huge success. Not only did we manage to raise a substantial amount of money, but we also got the opportunity to educate the public on the importance of cancer and health awareness, as well as conduct some screening with the help of our CANSA Mobile Health Clinic. We are grateful to every CANSA, Bulls and Cheetahs supporter who made sure to let their pink show on game day,” says CANSA CEO Elize Joubert. 

    The money raised will be used to buy another CANSA Mobile Health Clinic in order for CANSA to conduct cancer and health screening in the local communities. This specific Mobile Clinic will be used in the following areas; Hammanskraal, Winterveld, Hebron, Soshanguve, Mapone and Garankuwa. To read more on what CANSA’s Mobile Health Clinics offer, visit

    “Thank you to Vodacom and the Bulls who allowed CANSA the opportunity to be a part of this campaign once again. We know that one in four people in SA are affected by cancer, and we are glad that these people are standing together to fight against this dreaded disease,” continues Joubert.

    Shanil Mangaroo, head of marketing at the Blue Bulls Company heaped praise on all those that supported the cause.

    ”The success of this drive must go to the sponsors, partners, suite owners, season ticket holders and all those fans that contributed to this amazing cause. Together with our friends at CANSA we set ourselves a target of R500 000, and with the help of some truly generous companies and individuals we surpassed the goal and raised a little over R600 000. We are proud to have been granted the opportunity to assist the real heroes who take on this disease on a daily basis.”
