Dust off your purple speedo’s gents – it’s Daredevil run time

Feb 7, 2017, Author: Hello Joburg

It takes rather serious balls to run through peak-hour traffic wearing nothing but a Speedo, thats for sure. Um, sorry why? Because cancer is not selective – it does not choose age, colour or body shape – in fact, 1 in 6 South African men are affected by cancer in their lifetimes.

The Daredevil run initially started as one brave soul daring to jog through peak hour traffic in a Speedo to create awareness about cancer, to a massive countrywide phenomenon with a noble cause and the support of the nation’s men (and women) behind it, not to mention Hollard Insurance as it’s main sponsor.

The only way to beat cancer is to raise awareness through initiatives like the Daredevil Run, because honestly prevention is way easier than a cure!

All funds raised from the entry fees go towards cancer screening and awareness programmes across the country. So the more Hollard Daredevils that run, the greater the impact will be.

Check your jewels, pull on that purple Daredevil speedo and let’s run cancer outta town, shall we?
