Which SA corporate has the biggest balls?

Share this...

The challenge is on. Which South African corporate is the ballsiest? Which company will encourage as many of their male employees as possible to get behind a cause that raises awareness about male cancers? It’s official – the search is on for the business that enters the most participants into the ultimate “run with a difference that makes a difference” – the 2022 Hollard Daredevil Run.

There are no bigger bragging rights than those that come with being the company that raises the most funds and who dares the most at the Daredevil Run. Whether you gather with thousands of other men and boys at Zoo Lake in Johannesburg or run from wherever your company is situated countrywide, this event (held on Friday 30 September this year) sees men dressed only in a purple speedo running 5km to raise awareness about prostate and testicular cancer.

Screening for prostate cancer can mean early detection and treatment before the cancer spreads to other areas of the body.  With 1 in 6 men being diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime, and with black African men being at an even higher risk of getting prostate cancer than any other race group (some research suggests it may be as high as 1 on 4 for African men), awareness about cancers that affect males is vital to save lives.

While prostate cancer mainly affects males over 50, the incidence of men developing the disease in their late thirties and early forties, is on the increase. While not as common as prostate cancer, testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting males between the ages of 15 and 35. With early detection, this disease can have a high cure rate.

No matter your designation, your shape, your size, your age or your fitness level, gather your colleagues, get out of your comfort zone, celebrate your man bits and raise money by running cancer outta your hood, all while having a lot of fun. Let’s face it, running 5km in a speedo for a good cause on a Friday afternoon is so much better than being behind your desk.

Entries cost R 160 each and include your race pack and purple speedo which will be couriered directly to you. All proceeds from the Hollard Daredevil Run go to CANSA and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of South Africa.
