A lekker four day braai is set to break records for a good cause

From Wednesday March 18 until Sunday 22 March, braai masters Richard Knoetze and Pieter Van Dalen will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest timed braai marathon.

With braaing as a part of our culture and national heritage, the goal is to retain the record in South Africa. But more importantly, it is an effort to raise awareness for early detection of bipolar disorder.

The current record of 80 hours is held by South African Jan Greef and was completed in the USA on 27 April 2014. Knoetze and Van Dalen will be braaing 96 hours non stop in an attempt to beat it.

The outdoor event will be open to the public at Tyger Valley Shopping Mall in Cape Town. Show your support!
