Profession: Marketing Manager – WeChat Africa
DOB: 21 March 1991
I can WITHOUT a doubt claim that I have been called “Crazy” “Mad” and even “Idiotic” more times in the past few months than I have in my existence. The look on people’s faces is priceless and makes me question my own saneness A LOT. Yet, the conversation is continually brought up and the interest, questions and support I have received from those around me is overwhelming.
Running is a passion of mine for reasons I cant quite comprehend – Paying money to race outdoors, The agonizing muscle cramps and the dark early morning cold. Yet it is the highlight of my day everyday.
The MAD2RUN venture completes every part of who I am and I feel beyond privileged to be giving the power and education to those who are the future of South Africa. It’s so easy to turn a blind eye and ignore the education battle we fight in this country. It’s time for me to make a change and more importantly make a difference by being an active participant rather than a passive observer. We are Ordinary people doing an extraordinary thing. MAD2RUN – Sweat, tears, smiles and certainly a few stability and sanity checks later will indisputably be the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done.
