To mark Breast Cancer Awareness month, we at OPTIPHI® would like to celebrate the amazing things that people can do to help others. If you are wondering what you and your company can do this October to contribute to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, here is a list of exciting activities:


  1. Join Cuppa for Cancer

To mark Mandela Day OPTIPHI® joined forces with Mrs SA Finalist 2015, Anéle Jansen Van Rensburg’s Cuppa for Cancer held on Saturday 18 July. All proceeds from the event went to CANSA. Why not sponsor a Cuppa for Cancer event?

  1. Volunteer at your Local Hospice

Many affected by cancer have no friends or family to visit them. They would appreciate the company and maybe even a hand with some household chores or shopping. Why not brighten someone’s day by sparing some of your time?

  1. Donate your Hair for a Wig

Hair loss is a common side-effect of chemotherapy. CANSA makes and distributes over 2 000 wigs via wig banks each year – of those, 200 are donated to cancer survivors under the age of 18. Contact your closest CANSA Care Centre to find out how to donate your ponytail.

  1. Take a Table at Pink Drive’s Pink Mardi Bra Dinner

Enjoy an evening of glitz and glamour with Pink Drive. With the promise of helping you to forget about the year’s mayhem for a night while helping a good cause, why not book a table?

  1. Spar Women’s Race

The SPAR Women’s Races began in 1992 as a way to get women of all ages, shapes and sizes together to enjoy a safe 5km or 10km run and enjoy the day. Everyone is welcome, regardless of whether they run regularly or are just starting out. Enter a team, enjoy a fun filled day out and support some good causes.
