The once-off COVID-edition, national Hollard Daredevil Run 2021 is officially open for entries

Get ready for the streets of your hood to be painted purple on Friday 15 October when thousands of brave men in purple speedos will run through the streets for a good cause.

The Hollard Daredevil Run is going countrywide! This once-off COVID-edition, national event will see runners from anywhere in the country participating from the comfort of their own neighbourhoods by running alone, with a friend or in a small group of a maximum of 5 runners.

Prostate cancer is the most common male cancer and is on the increase. According to global research, one in every six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Early diagnosis of prostate cancer can mean a 95% chance of being cured.

“The Hollard Daredevil Run is an opportunity to dare the men in our lives to be brave, to participate in a run with a difference to make a difference, to challenge stereotypes about male cancers, to start conversations about understanding prostate and testicular cancer and to learn how to lower cancer risk and how to catch it early,” says Heidi Brauer, Chief Marketing Officer at Hollard.

Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men aged between 15 – 39 and can affect men of all races. The survival rate of stage 1 testicular cancer can be as high as 100%, making early detection and prompt action vital.

“We’re challenging South African men to confront male cancers head-on by showing that they’re not afraid to run in a speedo, not afraid to talk about cancer and not afraid to get checked,” Brauer says.

“This is part of our ongoing purpose of enabling a better future for more people. By ensuring that these cancers are caught early, we enable better futures not only for the men whose chances of survival are increased, but also their families and loved ones.”
Interested runners can register online and will receive a couriered Daredevil pack which includes a branded purple speedo, water bottle, purple mask, fundraising band, logistics for the day and important cancer awareness information.

So, whether you are from Bloemfontein or Bellville, Scottburgh or Soweto, Pofadder or Polokwane, man up and run cancer outta your hood.

Entries cost R160 with all proceeds going to CANSA and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of South Africa. Friends, family and neighbours can also sponsor runners and raise funds towards this important cause.

QUESTION

Do you believe this is the toughest period for financial advice in many years?

ANSWER

Yes, it’s hard to navigate the challenges and difficult to adapt. I’m struggling.
No, I have managed to navigate the challenges and have adapted. I’m good.
50/50. I just feel like whether we like it or not, we have to ready ourselves for change… be resilient and scale for the future. It’s not about survival of the fittest anymore but survival of the quickest. We just have to move on with life.
