Two sporting stars raising funds for Endurocad at this year’s Cape Town marathon

Former SA Marathon and Two Oceans Half Marathon Champion Nolene Conrad has joined hands with Former International Cricketer and now SA Cricket commentator, JP Duminy in an effort to raise funds for our Endurocad’s Young Females Empowerment Program. They will both be participating at the Cape Town Marathon this year, and hope to through their participation achieve their fundraising goal.
 
The Cape Town Marathon has confirmed that the mass event will take place this year. The marathon event will take place on the 17th of October and have capped entries at 12 000 participants. 
 
Nolene has been coaching JP since February this year and will join him on the day to ensure he achieves his goal of a sub 4 hour marathon. “JP has been very disciplined and committed to his goal of running a marathon under 4 hours. His training has been going well, he has improved his times over the shorter distances and I believe he can do it.” -Nolene 
 
Together they aim to raise R42 000 for the Endurocad Young Female Empowerment programme which aims to educate, empower and develop young females. The funds will afford 42 young females in disadvantaged communities an opportunity to attend the camps and be selected onto the program. “We are both so passionate about helping the young people in our communities. By joining hands and making it a collaborative effort , we can hopefully raise more funds in a short amount of time. ” Nolene 
 
They are calling on our running community to support us in raising the much needed funds.
