Story

Being Grade 10 learners, we understand the importance of education as vehicle to open doors to future opportunities.  In South Africa and in particular, the poor Eastern Cape region, not everybody has the same access to education. Literacy levels are very low and children do not have books available to them to improve reading skills.  60% of children in the Eastern Cape cannot read with meaning by the end of Grade 4.  A good quality education is not possible without literacy. This is both tragic for children, as well as disastrous for the Eastern Cape economy in future.  We cannot expect reduced unemployment and a revitalised economy with illiterate inhabitants. We have joined forces with the non-profit organisation, sportsforlives (www.sportsforlives.org) to help raise funds for a literacy centre for a school in Mdtantsane. Sports for Lives is a credible organisation which believes that sport has the power to change lives. They facilitate opportunities for individuals and teams to play sport for a purpose beyond their own enjoyment. They have facilitated many projects including a new arm for Uboko a learner at our school.

We are wanting to obtain sponsorship to complete our 12 hour non-stop MULTI SPORTS FOR LIVES ULTRA MARATHON CHARITY RELAY.  The relay is comprised of a 2 hour run, 1,5 hour swim, 2,5 hour paddle, 3 hour cycle and 3 hour surf.
