RE/MAX Foundation presents bursaries to future sporting stars

In partnership with the Sporting Chance Development Foundation, the RE/MAX Foundation will be offering two young sportsmen bursaries to attend the Western Cape Sports School.

RE/MAX Foundation Manager, Sandy Smith, says that the decision was taken to partner with Sporting Chance because their vision falls in line with RE/MAX Foundation’s focus to support worthy causes for upliftment and development of South Africa’s young people.
“Sporting Chance’s vision aims to provide opportunities for sporting achievement and personal development for as many children as possible,” says Smith, “This is very much what the Foundation is about and where our focus lies. Uplifting the youth will make for a better future generation that will be able to pay it forward.”
The Sporting Chance organisation provides children with the opportunity to develop their academic and sporting ability in a structured and safe environment. They host several projects nationally, allowing them to identify and support talented individuals through coaching, bursary and mentorship programmes. Their programmes include Street Soccer, Street Cricket, Calypso Cricket, Khulani Beach Soccer and Development Holiday Coaching Clinics. Through these programmes, they have reached over 30 000 children, of whom cricketers, Thami Tsolekile (Cape Cobras, Lions, South Africa A, South Africa and Western Province)and Malusi Siboto (Knights, North West, South Africa U-19’s), to name just two, have become successful sportsmen.
Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa and Foundation Director, says that involvement with an organisation such as Sporting Chance provides the RE/MAX Foundation with the opportunity to further enrich children’s lives and communities in which the brand operates. “Our company ethos is to make the areas in which we operate better places to live. We have a passion for community because we are a part of the communities – the real estate professionals within RE/MAX don’t’ just work in the area, they live there, have families there, and are active members of their own community. It’s important to us as a brand to give back and help to ensure a better future for the upcoming generations, which is the main reason behind the Foundation and the causes it supports.”
Smith says that the RE/MAX Foundation’s donation of the two bursaries will be highlighted at Sporting Chance’s 18th Annual Inter Media Cricket challenge being held on Sunday, 22 February from 09h00 at the Constantia Sports Complex. DJ’s and media celebrities from Cape Talk, KFM, SABC, eTV, Expresso, Independent Newspapers, Radio Helderberg, Hectic 9, Media 24 and Heart 104.9 have entered teams and it’s guaranteed to be exciting and great fun. Members of the public are urged to come and see the action and have a great day out with their friends and family.
“We will be presenting our donation to the organisation and will get to meet the boys that will receive these bursaries. The boys will also be featured in the March issue of our Community Impact newsletter. The RE/MAX Foundation will keep up–to-date with how the boys are doing over the five year period. We look forward to engaging with these young men and seeing how their lives are changed through this process,” Smith concludes.
