Supersport United through their Corporate Social Investment (CSI) are definitely societal change makers. The Pretoria club is doing their part to promote Breast Cancer initiatives as October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Perennially Supersport United have supported this worthy cause for the good of broader communities. Not because they have won the MTN8 Cup.
This is firmly ingrained in their corporate philosophy to be “the change they want to see in the world”. On their social media page, they say:
Always doing it #ForTheBadge 💙
To show their support for the cause, the team have dedicated 20 October as their day to join wear pink and join hands with other like minded individuals in support of the cause such as #Ithembawalk2019 #Stand4Her, a walkathon event dedicated to help women globally know the risks, know the signs and take action against breast cancer.
The club took to social media to show genuine and real interest help save lives.
Supersport is spreading breast cancer messages far and wide as well as offering a beacon of hope, Supersport players Aubrey Modiba, Thabo Mnyamane, Grant Kekana, Siyabonga Nhlapo chose to wear red lipstick in support of breast cancer awareness.
The players will be taking part in the annual Avon Ithemba Walkathon on October 20 in Marks Park, Emmarentia to show their support for the fight against breast cancer, a disease that will strike 1 in 29 South African women in their lifetime.
What a good Oscober social responsibility cause. It might be worth the effort to give up, lose or ditch the booze to support such worthy community initiatives.
The message to dominate through the event is that early detection is critical to saving lives.
Free tests and education will be conducted on-site with men and women from the surrounding communities free to avail themselves for testing and education.
