South Africa’s greatest running legend, Zola Budd, has teamed up with Endurocad to raise funds to help develop, educate and empower young women.
The Helping Young Women Set The Pace fundraiser, which is being championed through the Elana Meyer running academy, is targeting youth between the ages of 14 and 18 from communities surrounding Stellenbosch, including Kayamandi, Cloetesville, Ida’s Valley, Stellenzicht, Macassar and Eersterivier in the Western Cape.
Endurocad is seeking to provide a safe space for young girls who are suffering from gender-based violence and increasing mental health issues.
The campaign aims to offer new skills, empowerement, confidence and develop healthy lifestyle choices as the girls transition into young women.
Furthermore, Endurocad introduces young women to athletics and the opportunity for them to obtain scholarships abroad.
At 55, Budd will line up for the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon set to take place from Saturday, 16 October 2021.
