From November 26th to the 28th a team of four from the Football Foundation will be participating in a 90 kilometre run from the Southernmost point (Cape Agulhas) to Danger Point in Gansbaai. The event is called Point to Point and all funds go towards the Foundation.

The Football Foundation of South Africa was birthed from the Grootbos Foundation and was established with the dual aims of achieving greater social integration in the Gansbaai region and educating and empowering youth, using sports as a vehicle for change. Two volunteers, one intern and one local coach will be participating in the run to raise awareness and funds for the foundations sports programs, with hopes of building a swimming pool in 2016. You might ask why they are willing to run such a distance- it’s because they love these kids!

The participants work with the children in Masakhane, Blompark, Stanford and Hermanus each and every day and want to use running to raise  awareness and funds to continue to provide sports and development opportunities for the youth in the Gansbaai, Stanford and Hermanus communities! The team will run the 90K over the course of three days running beside the coast and camping along the way.

International sponsors are signing up to sponsor indivi-dual kilometers and donating accordingly. Local donors can get involved in our 90 for 90 campaign. We are challenging locals in the community to support the 90K by donating R90.
