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
As the Pirates MAD2Run crew (a.k.a “the MAD Pirates”), we’ll be taking to the road in a relay-style fundraising event in aid of the Make A Difference Foundation (MAD Foundation), and we need your help to get us through. The running route from Johannesburg to Cape Town provides a platform to raise awareness, support and funding for a real cause – the investment of academically talented scholars in South Africa. “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" – what an amazing outlook for the building and development of our beautiful country, one scholar at a time. The “MAD Pirates” have come together, through our shared passion of running and sport, to better our community and our country. Education is a major foundation to South Africa’s future, however we believe that additional values the MAD Leadership Foundation brings to their scholarship programme are what will build a better SA. These values have such synergy with our sport, which made the alignment with the MAD Pirates and MAD2Run an amazing fit. Support our crew by donating to our cause, and follow our journey to Cape Town as we run - Natalie Mills - 168km, Emma Hall - 160km, Clover-Ann Lee - 160km, Ross Beukes - 168km, Ryan Mills - 160km, Lara Braun - 160km and Henry Cock - 400km in one week!
