SAY WHAT!
Mathew Mole is running the MUT? Matt is actually a keen runner for those that do not know and he has signed up to run the MUT along with Jako Loots, his road manager.
Matt and Jako will run for charity supporting LIV Village.

The LIV model is long term cluster foster care, where children have a sense of belonging in a supportive community.

They place orphaned and vulnerable children in a family environment where all their needs are met by taking a holistic approach to physical, emotional and spiritual healing.

MountCo has come on board to sort out these boys with some kit for their run, keep an eye out on our socials as to what gear Matt and Jako will use to take on the challenge!

Stay tuned for Matt’s tour schedule along the Garden Route post the MUT
