Nine girlfriends decided to run the New York marathon and in keeping with the spirit of the New York Marathon, we chose the Autotec Foundation. A young student called Power, from one of the underprivileged schools, in South Africa will accompany us.
We want to raise funds to assist Autotec to provide sports facilities and equipment for the 10 schools in Mpumalanga Province, in South Africa.
We are all paying out own way, so all proceeds will go directly to the cause. We believe that rural South African children have incredible talent to excel in most sports. They need little encouragement and basic facilities.
Power has been chosen to be a role model and a symbol of the future for the black rural children in South Africa.
I work with these children on a daily basis and I can assure you that their potential is endless, and it just breaks my heart that we can’t do more for them. This generation must try to be different to so many before them, who never saw the light. One $ = ZAR7-50, each dollar we raise can make that difference seven times over. We count on your support, your compassion and your sense of achievements. Visit the Autotec Foundations website www.autotecfoundation.org.za.
Please help us, to help them, change their world!
