On the 23rd of March 2018, 18 MAD cyclists will leave Jo'burg bound for Cape Town. Over 8 days we'll cover 1575km, arriving in Cape Town ready to run the Old Mutual Two Oceans half marathon. I'm joining the ride to raise funds for a cause I believe in, education, and for a foundation that has proven itself capable of making a sustainable difference in this space.
The ride aims to raise funds and awareness for the Make A Difference Leadership Foundation (MAD). MAD focusses on leadership development through education and was founded by Francois Pienaar in 2003. The Foundation currently supports over 200 scholars.
MAD focusses on identifying, supporting and developing the future leaders of South Africa. Through a holistic, long-term approach, MAD offers scholars support in the areas of mentorship and personal, academic and leadership development.
