BENEFITING: Operation Graduation/JRLA
Mema Athletics Club is a non profit athletics club in Polokwane , Limpopo Province in South Africa. The club trains kids between the ages of 12 - 17 years old for FREE. The main objective is to develop track and field in the rural areas of South Africa. Most kids have no access of facilities and sports is not important in the province. I left South Africa in 1979 on track scholarship to the University of Texas El Paso. I spent 32 years in the USA and now i am back here in South Africa trying to develop track and field. Most kids do not participate in track and field. The main objective of the club is to identify talent and develop it. our challenge is funds for shoes, track suits, traveling and operating the club.I have tried various ways asking for funding, however, it has been a tough battle. Please help the children in out Province. We need to fund raise for the Relay Challenge on April 6TH 2013.
