A 5km Run with a Difference that Makes a Difference
The Hollard DareDevil Run has grown from one brave soul daring to jog through peak hour traffic in a Speedo, to a massive countrywide phenomenon with a noble cause.
The only way to beat cancer is to raise awareness through initiatives like the Hollard DareDevil Run. Because early detection saves lives.
So check your jewels, pull on that purple DareDevil Speedo and let’s run cancer outta town. After all “It’s the one time in the year where you can run almost naked and not get arrested.” Sounds like a fair trade-off in the fight against cancer. #DaredevilRun2018 literally saves lives.
Says Thulani Sibisi, 2 Oceans Marathon winner and prostate cancer survivor: “I knew the word ‘cancer’. But I didn’t know what it was about. Now, I know’ – see why Thulani believes initiatives like DareDevil are vital in raising awareness about male cancers:

Who will you run for?
