MAD2RUN – PIRATES BOYS DOING GREAT THINGS FOR OTHERS
As some of you know, and many of you will not. We have two current Pirates Rugby coaches and eight previous player are running from Jozi to Cape Town for the MAD Charity started by Francois Pienaar over 10 years ago.
They have called their team MAD2Run which is apt, considering that almost none of the guys had run more than 10km just over a year ago. You are able to find out more about the journey, click on www.mad2run.co.za or
Their Comedy Evening will be held at Parkers Comedy Club in Monte Casino, 25 March 2014. You are able to book your tickets online through this link
