“One hundred percent of the money I raised will go to,” Masekela told before the race. After crossing the finish line, Masekela Tweeted: “Well Tweeps, I let you down. Didn’t beat @iamdiddy. Hit a wall from hell at 18. Finished around 5 hrs. Hardest thing I’ve ever done.”

To beat Diddy he needed to be under 4:15. But no matter. He finished and Stoked Mentoring wins big.
