ACROSS AS | FOR SA
Until the MAD2Run Team 2022 embark on their adventure
WHAT WE DO
We run our hearts out!
MAD2Run is an annual fundraising event – the journey is an 8-day long, 24hr, relay-style run from Johannesburg to Cape Town (1520KM). There are 44 runners, who are embracing this upcoming adventure. MAD2Run 2021 will be our 8th consecutive event, and will be taking place from the 8th – 15th October 2021.
As a relay run, each team member is committed to running a minimum of 20KMs per day!
WHY WE DO IT
To put others first
The Make A Difference Leadership Foundation (MAD) is a holistic full investment scholarship programme. They aim to identify academically talented scholars with leadership potential, who do not have the necessary financial resources, and offer them support in the areas of education, leadership and lifeskills development. MAD’s philosophy is “focused on the development of a select cadre of high performance individuals who, in themselves, are role models who inspire others and who will support each other in the future by giving back to others.
MAD was founded by Francois Pienaar in 2003 and are currently supporting 311 scholars on their program, from all over SA. MAD is the sole beneficiary of the MAD2Adventures NPO.
Follow our adventure
We are part of a team of 36 MADsters who will be running a 24hr relay run from Johannesburg to Cape Town, 1520kms, in 1 week with the purpose of raising funds for underprivileged scholars. All funds raised go towards the education and leadership development of SA’s future leaders.
James (200kms) – “I have always been an avid runner; I love the open air and the mantra of what you put in is what you get out. Then hearing about MAD2Run and the whole concept of being able to give back to the future generations of children less fortunate then myself by putting my body on the line doing what I love was just amazing. I committed to 2021 and with 2 life changing health scares I was sidelined and unable to complete this amazing initiative but I am back stronger then ever with a partner in crime Denny we aim to smash out as many Kms as our bodies will allow to make a difference in these young leaders of the future.”
Denny (315kms) – “As someone that knows the value of education and having my mother sacrifice a lot to get me through school and varsity, this is but a small way of giving back and creating an opportunity for talented individuals that just need a chance. Education is the key to a great society!”
