I am running to raise boys to be good men

I am running to raise boys to be good men

Personal message

My name is Thando Malepe, I am a MENtor at The Character Company. Raising boys to be good men need courage from a warrior and I am practicing that by taking action.

Our society has a serious challenge a big problem with our men who have lost their sense of masculinity and values, and it is easy to talk about it but not take action. It takes a lot of courage, faith, and self-believe to raise a hand and step up to run 56km as a first-time runner.

I am running the Old Mutual Two Oceans ultra marathon this year in support of The Character Company and I would really appreciate your support.

The Character Company is a long term mentorship programme for young boys growing up with absent fathers - raising boys to be good men.  Other than the weekly and monthly programmes, holiday camps and “one-on-one” intervention we also focus on support for single mothers and raising awareness of the impact of absent fathers on our families and society.
