Join the Crazy Challenge in a city near you

Activator Vusi Tshabalala, from Tzaneen, and Samuel Ntswanisi have made it their mission to inspire fellow youth to reach their goals by running/cycling 1850kms. The run/cycle will start from the Parliament buildings in Cape Town to Nkowa-Nkowa Stadium in Limpopo. The run/cycle will cut across five provinces: Western Cape, Northern Cape, Free State, Gauteng and Limpopo. It will happen during the 16 Days of Activism Against the Abuse of Women and Children Campaign.

Vusi and Samuel will be joined by a small group of runners and cyclists who share their vision. “I am also collecting signatures, we want to break a record by collecting 1 million signatures collected for a social movement. The current record stands at 35 000. 

“We appeal to Activators to please come out and support us as we make our way”, says Vusi.

The cycle starts in Cape Town on Friday, 15 November 2013 at 23h00. Western Cape Activators, please come out in numbers to support the team when they take off. The runners got a 16-day head start and the cyclists will follow suit. All runners and cyclists will meet take off together from Johannesburg. 

Fellow Activator, Fernando Visagie (in Kimberley) and ACTIVATE! facilitator, Lerato Mahoyi (in Johannesburg) will welcome and cheer the runners and cyclists on when they pass through their cities. 

All money raised will go to Bjatladi Youth Development and Vantshwa Va Xivono, two organisations that work with the youth in Limpopo. These organisation support at least seven (7) other youth development centres in seven (7) different communities with a population of more than 10 000 youth.
