World Cancer Day saw one of our national heroes get downright muddy for all the right reasons. Headlining this year’s Husqvarna Mud Run, rugby legend Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira tackled the challenging course with his signature strength, determination and larger-than-life smile.
Hosted at the Jam Tree in Harare, the 2020 Husqvarna Mud Run saw almost 3 000 enthusiastic participants walk and dance their way through swampy terrain, mud pits, rope obstacles and more. The aim? To raise funds for KidzCan, a Zimbabwean-based organisation focused on helping children living with cancer.
The annual charity run raised an impressive Zim $ 738,515.00 for KidzCan. The funds will be used to provide essential medication, transport and tests to effected children as well as create awareness and provide psychosocial support to the children’s families.
In partnership with Cutting Edge, a leading supplier of light machinery to Zimbabwe, Husqvarna has been the proud sponsor of the Mud Run for the last 8 years.
