The man who did a 6-hour cooler box run in honour of Boeta Cassiem

Scott Arendse ran for six hours with a cooler box in honour of Cape Town’s famous ice-cream man, Mogamat ‘Boeta’ Cassiem. In early June, during an EWN investigation into the impact of the lockdown on the sports industry, Boeta Cassiem explained how he was dealing with no income due to the suspension of sport and the challenges he faced with his poor eyesight because of cataracts. After funds were raised thanks to generous fans, the operation took place on Saturday. Arendse ran for six hours over the weekend as Cassiem underwent the first of two operations.
