MAD2Run was an idea created within a group of mates who responded to an SOS mail that I sent feeling there was more we could do as proud South Africans.
I’m known as Phat Shaun or Phatty, having earned that name as a 21year old 130kg prop! I began running to get out of the front row and for some unknown reason began to enjoy being on the road. In 2013 I ran the Comrades in honor of my late dad, Tim Raaff, which is by far my greatest running achievement!
MAD2Run is going to be a game changer and I can’t wait to see the difference we make to our amazing country.
Our team consists of a bunch of mates who are driven by making a difference. The MAD Charity is a perfect partner for us as we believe that education is the sustainable change we need in South Africa
