Help me build our nation through education

I plan on running in the Two Oceans Half Marathon 2019. Over the coming months, not only will I be training for the challenge ahead in March, but I will be training for an even greater purpose of Building Our Nation Through Education, One Scholar at a Time by raising funds the Spirit Education Foundation – an organisation with a cause close to my heart.

The Spirit Education Foundation is a registered, non-profit organisation based in Cape Town, South Africa and was established in April 1994 to provide opportunities for quality education to young disadvantaged high school scholars. Through the awarding of educational scholarships to financially disadvantaged scholars in the Western Cape, the Spirit Education Foundation provides financial support for high school tuition. This includes extracurricular support and mentorship to all scholars enrolled in their programme.

I’ve set myself a target of raising R 10 000, which will go directly to supporting the Spirit Education Foundation. 100% of funds raised are used for the school fees, extra lessons, textbooks, stationery, uniforms and school activities for the high school scholars part of the Spirit Education Foundation scholarship programme, as well as their attendance on the annual Spirit Education Foundation camp.
