The Hollard Daredevil 2020 takes place this afternoon. It is a 5km run where male participants jog in speedos to raise funds and awareness for cancer. 

The fun run helps raise awareness and inspires positive change around cancers affecting men. All funds raised go towards cancer screening and awareness programs in disadvantaged communities. 

Prostate cancer PSA testing is done during collection times at the Hollard campus for those wanting to be tested. CANSA also has a testing station at the start of the run. 

It starts at 3pm at Zoo Lake Sports Club, Parkwood, Johannesburg and tickets cost from R50 – R250.


Let’s support this worthy cause.
