Our belief is that in making a small difference, we can create significant change. We want to use our physical resources to attain better resources for deserving and promising scholars. MAD2Adventures is a registered NPO and Level 1 B-BBEE contributor.
MAD2Run is an annual fundraising event – the journey is an 8-day long, 24hr, relay-style run from Johannesburg to Cape Town (1520KM). There are 44 runners, who are embracing this upcoming adventure. MAD2Run 2021 will be our 8th consecutive event, and will be taking place from the 8th – 15th October 2021.
As a relay run, each team member is committed to running a minimum of 20KMs per day!
The Make A Difference Leadership Foundation (MAD) is a holistic full investment scholarship programme. They aim to identify academically talented scholars with leadership potential, who do not have the necessary financial resources, and offer them support in the areas of education, leadership and lifeskills development. MAD’s philosophy is “focused on the development of a select cadre of high performance individuals who, in themselves, are role models who inspire others and who will support each other in the future by giving back to others.
MAD was founded by Francois Pienaar in 2003 and are currently supporting 311 scholars on their program, from all over SA. MAD is the sole beneficiary of the MAD2Adventures NPO.

I'm part of the team of MAD runners looking to raise R2m for MAD! You can join our MAD movement and pledge to donate any amount from R1 to R100 per km that I run - I have set the target of running 140 km in 1 week!
"We are all just normal South Africans creating awareness through our fundraising efforts and by using our legs to run across SA to make a difference in the lives of gifted scholars to be our future leaders."
