"In an effort to raise funds and create awareness about breast cancer, Dunlop and Dunlop Zones countrywide, have pledged to donate at least R200,000 to the Breast Health Foundation over the month of October. "

In an effort to raise funds and create awareness about breast cancer, Dunlop and Dunlop Zones countrywide, have pledged to donate at least R200,000 to the Breast Health Foundation over the month of October.

Last year, the company was thrilled to donate R258,000 to the foundation following Dunlop’s October Breast Health Awareness Drive in support of the charity. Dunlop has also supported the BHF through efforts like the ‘Spin & Win’ competition at its Top Gear stand in Durban this year.

Once again Dunlop is going PINK to support this initiative, but with a few changes – including the opportunity for consumers to donate to the foundation directly and win great prizes. From September 25th every Dunlop tyre purchased through a participating Dunlop Zone will qualify for a raffle ticket towards an array of prizes. Furthermore, consumers will have the option of donating R5 for additional raffle tickets bought in-store, the proceeds of which will go directly to the Breast Health Foundation.

The Dunlop Zone stores and staff will PINK UP to help raise awareness for this campaign and drive donations for the BHF. Check out the Dunlop website and follow our Social Media platforms for more information.

First started in 2002, the Breast Health Foundation, where the majority of staff and volunteers are breast cancer survivors themselves, strives to put an end to the silent suffering of patients. It is their mission to make a difference through their multi-disciplinary approach to breast cancer through the Breast Cancer Chain of Survival that includes: creating awareness, providing access to information, support and counseling for those diagnosed with the disease and undergoing treatment, diagnostic intervention and ongoing analysis of care.


The Bosom Buddies project was created to promote a positive mindset, recovery and quality of life for the patient. In addition, the Breast Health Foundation has several mobile breast education units, sponsored with Dunlop tyres, who travel into disadvantaged communities in order to educate women who would otherwise not have been made aware of these lifesaving facts.


So if you’re in the market for tyres, make sure that you choose a brand that you can trust, from a dealer network that offers service excellence through competitive pricing and expert advice while also supporting this worthy cause. We have all experienced the struggle of those affected by cancer – be it family, friends, work colleagues or even ourselves.
