Cheque HBUFC overhandigd in Kaapstad

In de aanloop naar Two Oceans Marathon 2019 is de donatie van Two Rivers 2019 vandaag persoonlijk overhandigd aan Alec en Jaap van ‘Houtbay United Football Club‘. Komende zondag wordt de 50e editie van de Two Oceans gelopen. Ed en Marco zijn met team Hardlopen in Zuid-Afrika in Kaapstad om deze ‘grote broer’ van de Two Rivers te lopen.

Baie dankie!
Namens de gehele club een ‘baie dankie’ naar alle deelnemers en sponsors van Two Rivers Marathon 2019. Het geld wordt welbesteed. Met eigen ogen zien we vandaag het grote aantal sporters die met veel plezier gebruik maken van de faciliteiten, zowel kids als volwassenen. Een fantastische plek die de communities verbindt!

Hout Bay United Football Community
Jeremy Elson, samen met Jaap Kreeftenberg één van de grondleggers, vertelt over het initiatief: ‘Hout Bay is like a minature version of South Africa and many of the Nations social struggles play our in our small village. The shadow of apartheid still looms over the country. There are very few areas of society where cultures mix on level terms. There’s inequality in education & living standards with people from the same community often living worlds apart but literally meters away from each other.

Our project uses football to bring our comunities together. We train our players as coaches and they inspire and mentor the next generation of kids who grow up playing with each other instead of against each other. We show that hard work pays off. That we’re stronger together, working as a community and we bring pride to our town showing how much we can achieve.

The Hout Bay United Football Community (HBUFC) is a non-profit football club created to unify the racially and economically divided community of Hout Bay, a seaside suburb of Cape Town, South Africa’.
