Braam is an extreme adventurer, conservationist, youth developer, motivational speaker, TV Presenter and author of the best seller “The Great Run”. He has an infectious energy, that is fed by his life-long passion to protect the environment and has inspired countless others to do the same!. In 2006 and again in 2008, against our country’s top medical and sport experts’ advice, Braam Malherbe and David Grier achieved two world first’s by running the entire length of the Great Wall of China, a distance of 4218kms, at a pace of a marathon a day for 98 days, as well as the entire coastline of South Africa, a distance of over 3200kms. Both expeditions raised in excess of R2.5 million for Operation Smile, an international charity. Braam believes that ‘desperate times call for desperate measures,’ and so, at the age of 54, completed a 768km unassisted ski-race to the South Pole with Peter van Kets in January 2012. Although only skiing for the first time 8 weeks before departing for Antarctica, they still finished in 3rd place. Besides representing South Africa in the Scott / Amundsen Centenary race, Braam featured in a 90 minute documentary highlighting the human impact on this most remote of places, and the rest of the planet in the last 100 years.
Braam presents on SABC2’s 50/50, was voted the Men’s Health 2010 Unsung Hero, named the Woolworths “My Planet” Ambassador and received the prestigious SABC3 Enviropaedia Eco Logic Award for 2012!
He continues to challenge all of us, to DO ONE THING – to make a positive difference for our planet and to have something to leave our children to smile about!
