Our 3rd Newsletter of the year!

Join us as we reach the 4th quarter and reflect on how we have been involved with spreading awareness and support for young women with breast cancer.

New Pamper Packs Distributed to Hospitals

From End July through August we distributed our very first batches of the brand New HHF Original design Pamper Packs to hospitals around Cape Town.

We dropped off bags at Groote Schuur Hospital, as well as the Cancer Care Branches at Vergelegen, Cape Gate and Panorama.

Thank you to the staff for receiving us and for giving your care and support to the patients! Pictured:

And handed out 20 pamper packs since 24 July

Alessa Pfaelzer Turns 40 & Donates to HHF

A massive thank you goes out to Alessa Pfaelzer who turned 40 at the beginning of September this year. Alessa requested that her guests, instead of buying gifts, made donations to our foundation. Through this Alessa raised an amazing 700 Euros for the foundation! 


Sandy Pieper Runs in Pink!
On 29 September Sandy Pieper wore her Helen Harder Foundation Women's running shirt and finished the Berlin Marathon in an inspiring 3hr 47m! 
Well done Sandy! Thank you for representing our foundation in support and spreading awareness for breast cancer across the globe.

HHF Represented at The Cape Pioneer Trek

Johan Geldenhuys and Tommy Muller took part in The Cape Pioneer Trek this year running 8-14 Sep. The guys pushed through and did us proud by sporting the Helen Harder Foundation Men's cycling shirts. Congratulations to the guys for completing the 7 day Mountain bike race, and thank you for your continued support!


Welcome to Wonderland! - Winter ball 2019 

On 17 August we hosted our 6th annual Winter Ball, and it was a great success! Guests were dressed to the nine's and were transported to a magical world filled with mind blowing entertainment by The Psychedelic Theatre, good food and wine, and a packed dance floor led by DJ Chopper.

The charity auction this year had an outstanding selection of prizes, and we managed to raise an amazing R250 000

Thank you to all our sponsors and guests who made this night possible, here's to another year of spreading awareness and helping young women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Middlevlei Trail Run 2019

On Sunday 6 October we hosted our annual Trail Run for breast cancer awareness at Middlevlei wine estate. 

We had a good turn out, and the runners definitely dressed to the occasion. We registered 38 people for the 5km fun run and 25 people for the 10km run, and managed to raise a total of R4 850.

Thank you to those who joined us for the run, and to Timing Mobi, SixWeeks Mobile Barista, Entry Ninja, Deon Valor, Nico Boshoff and the HHF PINK Team for helping us to host a fun and successful event. And a very special thank you to our sponsors Middlevlei Wine Estate, Kloppers Sport Cape Gate, and Big Dog Cafe without your assistance this day would not have been possible!
