Rugby is a game of pure passion and commitment but it also requires a strong spirit and to really make it far in this world, one must have raw talent.
This is something that 15 year old JC de Leeuw has, raw talent. He is from a small coastal town in South Africa, with a population of roughly 13 000 people, yet he was recognised by scouts and invited to take part in the Aldo Milani rugby tournament in Rovigo, Italy as part of the u/16 team. This tournament is presented with the approval of the Italian Rugby Federation as well of SA Rugby. This tournament is set to take place in April 2019 and the team will depart on their tour on the 23rd of April 2019.
JC is an outstanding player and could easily be an international rugby star , given the right exposure and opportunities. To have him go on this tour, will open amazing opportunities for him to fulfill his dreams.
For his travels, we need to raise a total of R18 000 (that is roughly $12500). As his family, we would love to carry the costs, but unfortunately we cannot do this alone, so we ask you for your generosity. Every bit helps, no matter how small and every bit will be received with utmost gratitude.
We are expected to make a deposit of $347.34 before 29 August 2018 to secure his position in this tour.
