Hi there precious friends and family!! I have been selected to represent SOUTH AFRICA (Women's Open) at the Touch Rugby World Cup in Australia 2015! YAY!!! Super exciting!
(You can also just look at the YouTube Link instead of reading this!!!)
The Touch Rugby World Cup 2015 is going to be held in Coff's Harbour, Australia from the 29 April-3 May 2015! I have spent hours and hours and hours (LITERALLY) committed to training hard (passing practice, fitness, game practice, eating healthy, physio, rehab, attending SA camps, etc) so we can be very competitive at the World Cup! We are currently ranked 3rd in the World (after Australia and New Zealand)...
I have been playing touch rugby for 15 years and have represented KZN and Western Province and South Africa. I am extremely passionate about this sport and would love the opportunity to attend the World Cup!
It is a dream of mine to play for my country on the international stage! Touch Rugby is unfortunately a minor sport in South Africa, therefore attendance to the World Cup is totally self-funded! The poor South African Rand is so weak at the moment and therefore makes international travel very expensive!
THIS IS WHY I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!!!
The cost to get to Australia totals approximately R50 000! Ouch! This is includes flights, accomodation, individual and team tournament registration fees, first aid, coaches and management fees and of course, our GREEN and GOLD "SPRINGBokke" kit...
If you feel like you could donate ANY amount to help fund me to get to Australia, I would be so appreciative and grateful for your considerable generosity! You really would be blessing me tremendously! I cannot thank you enough! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
(Lastly, please would you share this page with any of your friends and family too!)
