Genetic Technologies Partners with Pippa Mann

Genetic Technologies Limited has announced an agreement with Dale Coyne Racing driver Ms. Pippa Mann to promote BREVAGenplus®, the Company’s first-in-class, clinically validated risk assessment test for sporadic breast cancer. The partnership is reflective of the Company’s continuation of its U.S. focused marketing program for BREVAGenplus, with Mann serving for a second consecutive term as the product’s ambassador and spokesperson.

Mann is one of only nine female athletes to ever compete in the “Indy 500” and the only female driver to start in the race over the past four consecutive years. In addition to her role with Genetic Technologies, Mann is partnering with Susan G. Komen®, the world’s largest breast cancer organization, which funds more breast cancer research than any other non-profit, outside of the U.S. government, while providing screening, education, treatment and psychosocial support programs. In 2016, Mann was honored as one of Komen’s More Than Pink™ heroes in support of the organizations Bold Goal – to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by half, by 2026.

“We are excited to continue this outstanding partnership with Pippa. She is truly dedicated to leveraging her platform as a world-class athlete to impact women’s health and shares our passion for the integral role BREVAGenplus can play as a breast cancer risk assessment and preventative treatment management tool,” commented Eutillio Buccilli, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Genetic Technologies.

Key partnership activities this year will include the BREVAGenplus logo represented on Mann’s #63 Dale Coyne Racing car and promotional apparel. Mann will also participate at select BREVAGenplus oriented events and other promotional activities over the course of 2017. The 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 on May 28, 2017, will serve as the official launch of this year’s partnership program. The “Indy 500” is the largest single-day sporting event in the world and offers important promotional opportunities during the month-long lead-up to the race, which includes 12 days of on-track activities and hospitality event participation.

“I’m thrilled to welcome back Genetic Technologies as a partner with Dale Coyne Racing and proud to represent the BREVAGenplus brand. I’m excited to do my part in helping women and healthcare providers learn about the test and highlight how important it can be in determining individual breast healthcare plans and personal medical maintenance,” commented Pippa Mann.

Dale Coyne Enters Pippa Mann into Indy 500 for Fifth Straight Year

Pippa Mann is returning to Dale Coyne Racing for a fifth consecutive year to pilot the team’s third entry in the 101st Indianapolis 500. Mann will be back behind the wheel of the #63 Dale Coyne Racing Honda as she looks to make her sixth start at the famed 2.5-mile superspeedway.

The British driver will once again be paired with engineer Rob Ridgely. Ridgely was Mann’s engineer when she scored her best IndyCar Series finish in 2015 (13th), as well as her best Indy 500 result (18th) last year.

“I’m very happy to be rejoining Dale Coyne Racing for my fifth consecutive year with the team at the 101st Indy 500,” expressed Mann. “Dale has invested heavily in the team over the winter, and it’s an exciting time to be part of his organization. I’m looking forward to working with the same familiar faces from my 2016 campaign, like my race engineer Rob Ridgely, as well as working with the new members of the team, including my new teammates Sebastien (Bourdais) and Ed (Jones). I’m thrilled to be getting back on the race track this May for my sixth Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”

As she’s done for the past four consecutive years, Mann will continue to raise awareness for the Get Involved Campaign alongside her racing program. This year, the campaign that raises money for Susan G. Komen® is partnering with Auction Cause, a premier cause marketing agency, that will run the auction on eBay for Charity. The campaign will launch May 1 and close the week following the Indy 500. The funds raised will be used to support Komen’s global breast cancer research and community-based programs throughout the U.S.

“I’m also excited about the link up with Auction Cause and eBay for Charity this May,” added Mann. “They have so much experience running online campaigns, I feel like it’s a huge step for me, and for the Get Involved Campaign to partner with them. This new format has allowed me to reach out to more drivers, get them involved with more signed items, and I’m hoping we’re able to reach more race fans, and raise even more money for Susan G. Komen than we have ever done before.”

In the past two years, the campaign has raised over $135, 000. Items available in the 2017 auction will include 1:18 die-casts and artwork signed by various drivers, Mann’s race worn, pink helmet and suit, a karting night at Speedway Indoor Karting, as well as the popular ‘Turn the cockpit pink’ option where names of people are placed in the cockpit to honor the memories of loved ones lost, or those who are fighting or who have fought cancer.

“It’s always a pleasure to have Pippa on board for the Indy 500 and to help promote the Get Involved Campaign, raising funds for Susan G. Komen,” shared Team Owner Dale Coyne. “Pippa works hard every year to put together this program and to race in the Indy 500. With her perseverance and enthusiasm for our sport, it’s only fitting that we continue this relationship that started five years ago.”
