Former South African Women’s Hockey Olympians joined hands to create a video in support of the #WhiteCard digital campaign as they believe that peace and sport has the power to unite nations.

In light of the current situation that the world faces with the global COVID-19 pandemic, the #WhiteCard campaign has been launched to turn the focus to creating a movement in sport to build a better future for our next generation.

A white card has been used as a sign of commitment to peace efforts worldwide and where small actions make a difference.

Former three-time SA Hockey Olympian, Marsha Cox, has played her part by joining her former teammates.

She took to her Instagram account (@marsham8) to speak on the campaign.

“Sport has been instrumental in our lives, and as South African women’s hockey Olympians we are showing our solidarity to the global community by passing on the #WhiteCard.

“We hope that sport continues to unite nations and inspire and be instrumental to others as it has been to us.

“In the history of South African Hockey, the SA women have made four appearances at Olympic Games. All four teams joined together from all over the world to pass on the #WhiteCard.”

Former South African Women's Hockey player, Marsha Cox, joined her fellow former teammates in the #WhiteCard campaign to use peace and sport to unite nations.

 The launch of the campaign comes on International Day of Sport for Development and Peace, and Team South Africa have also joined the masses in support of creating a movement in support of developing sport for the future.

TeamSA’s tweet reads, “We join the rest of the world to celebrate the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace.

“Sport has the power to drive social change, community development and to foster peace and understanding, the same sentiments that were echoed by Nelson Mandela.”
