On Friday 13th March the 10th Hollard Daredevil Run took place at the Zoo lake sports club. Thousands of men ran through the streets of Jozi in the famous purple speedos to raise awareness about prostate & testicular cancer. This is the biggest men’s health event of the year and the pre-event publicity provided Prostate Cancer Foundation with a unique opportunity to educate men about prostate cancer and the importance of age appropriate screening to ensure early detection of curable prostate cancer. PCF’s vice-chairman of patient affairs, Thulani Sibisi and CEO Andrew Oberholzer stripped down to their speedos for numerous TV and radio interviews.
Hollard did a number of activations at running clubs in the Johannesburg area before the even,t at which they provided free PSA screening. Screening was also available to men at registration and after the run. A comprehensive men’s health guide was included in every pack adding further value to this important opportunity to promote men’s health.
There were scattered showers in the morning but the afternoon weather cleared and it turned out to be a beautiful late summer day in Jozi.
Prostate Cancer Foundation and CANSA are joint beneficiaries of this event which was probably the last mass gathering of men in 2020 now that the Corona virus has unfortunately reached South Africa. Thanks to Zenzile Mogoba and Nikki Belford for another great Daredevil run and the opportunity to make a difference to the health of South African men.
