Running for a cause all began, says Willem, when “In 2014, my wife dared my running partner and I to run a marathon in SA Flag swimming trunks. She was joking, but soon realized that we were not. We drew a lot of attention and had such a laugh that we decided to keep running in swimming trunks for a good cause – the Love your Nuts Foundation.
A few days after the 2017 Cape Town Marathon a young man saw photos of us on social media. He went to the website, watched the videos, felt a lump, saw his doctor, and got early detection and treatment.
A guy's life saved by a photo on Facebook - this is reason enough to raise awareness and funds for this worthy cause!
BTW in March 2018 I will run the Barcelona Marathon - again in the #loveyournuts speedo
