Love your NUTS

We are running in #loveyournuts speedos to raise funds for and raise awareness about testicular cancer. This is a cancer that is most common in my age group. I want to make the guys aware! The funds raised will be used to educate students in South African schools. Early detection is lifesaving!

4% of men diagnosed with testicular cancer die because of these 2 reasons:
1. During puberty the body changes. Boys feel these lumps but think it is part of growing up. So they think it will go away again. If they knew that it could be cancer their lives could have been saved.
2. Men feel the lumps but find it too embarrassing to go to the doctor. If they knew that it could be cancer their lives could be saved.

Knowledge and early detection is the best weapon against cancer. #loveyournuts hands out goodie bags in a humorous way to educate students about the importance of early detection. I would like to raise funds that 250 goodie bags can be handed out to students. A goodie bag cost R 200 and it can save a life! Any contribution is welcome.

More about this cause is on the website:

Runs for the first half of 2018 include:
