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.
Lianne (150km) –
For me MAD2Run is running so others can fly. It's setting out with a purpose and showing up, not only for yourself but also for others. Hoping to finish this off with the Cape Town Marathon!
Louise (300kms) –
Running is hard. It sucks most days and yet it is the single greatest feat I get to be a part of. It challenges every fibre in my being as it demands consistency, discipline, and courage. It is a space where I continually get to test the limits of my own potential. Moreso, I get to define and redefine that potential daily by conquering obstacles both of a mental and physical nature. It sucks, but through running I get to experience the world around me in a very real way. Running takes me on adventures that colour in the corners of my soul.
Through MAD2Run we get to create the opportunity for others who are less fortunate than us to test the boundaries of their capabilities, we afford them the opportunity to grow into their potential and test the boundaries of what they are capable of. It’s an opportunity for me push my limits and in so doing not only inspire others to do the same but also (through raising awareness and funds for the MAD Leadership Foundation to open up the world for someone else to experience it in a very real and different way.
