Ruth sent me the following email about a project to build a BMX track for the children of Kayamandi:
Through Elana Meyers foundation, JAG, www.songo.info is raising funds for the construction of a BMX track in the Stellenbosch Township through donors buying virtual kilometers of the 950 kilometers. These are to be ridden by current World Marathon Champion, Christoph Sauser and South Africa’s own golden boy, Burry Stander. The proposal includes the track, bikes, helmets, a storage container, clinics and maintenance.
The cost of one such kilometer is R1000.00 (currently just over $130)
- If you decide to make a donation of less than R1000.00, we would love to give you a write up on the blog (http://www.songo.info/)
- If you decide to by Kilometres, we would love to write on the blog about it as well as send you a virtual certificate showing the amount of kilometres you have purchased.
- If you donate R10 000.00 or more we will give you a limited edition, signed, UCI World Champion, Christoph Sauser riding top (Photographs attached-we only have a few).
Partner with songo.info and the JAG Foundation, in building the future, in building a world class BMX track for the children of the Kayamandi community.
Simply follow this link to the JAG Foundation website, fill in “Songo” in the reference block, and follow your track building contributions on the blog. Buy your kilometer now, buy your kilometer here.
Ruth and Elana
So now you have three courses of action to choose from: (a) go make a donation, (b) spread the word, especially to those that may be interested in this project, (c) discuss!
