MAD2Adventures for a Cause exists to create a unique and adventurous platform for fundraising. It is an opportunity to be a part of an inspiring cross-country journey to raise funds of the Make A Difference Leadership Foundation (MAD). 2019 will see out 6th consecutive MAD2Run event, as well as our 2nd annual MAD2Ride challenge!
MAD2Run & MAD2Ride 2019 will start from Johannesburg on the 12th April and finish on the 19th April in Cape Town. MAD2Run is a 24 hour, 7 day, relay run event completed but 24 runners and 12 supporters; while MAD2Ride is a half road and half mountain bike challenge, for 20 cyclists. The teams cover 1520km across South Africa and are accompanied by a team of supporters, physiotherapists/chiropractors and paramedics. The entire team then goes on to run the Old Mutual Two Oceans 21km race on the 20th April...just as a victory lap of sorts :)
Having started our first MAD2Run voyage in 2014, to date, MAD2Adventures had raised over R3,2m for MAD - and the more money we are able to raise each year, allows for more MAD scholars to join the programme! MAD is a holistic and comprehensive education programme that financially and emotionally supports each scholar in achieving academic and leadership excellence.
It is palpable how motivated this group of young individuals are to start leading SA - and MAD2Run & MAD2Ride is a part of helping them achieve their goals and dreams of becoming active citizens who take ownership of South Africa.
We are using our feet for a great feat!
Join our journey, join the movement!
