“I believe that when people experience an event as a community it can transcend and change people’s lives” – Andy Serkis


The Minutes for Moola Fundraiser is aiming to use the High Performance Sprint Triathlon as a platform to raise R21,000 which would be enough  money to send 45 members of the SUNWELL Community Health Programme, run by the Department of Sport Science, on a Back 2 Basics camp. These members are from previously disadvantaged backgrounds and SUNWELL wants to give them an experience they have probably not had as young adults, as well as an opportunity to learn valuable life skills.


Anyone who wishes to donate to the Minutes for Moola Fundraiser can do so by sponsoring one of the many Sport Science students or staff members that will be competing in the High Performance Sprint Triathlon on 30 September 2017. The concept is that individuals or companies sponsor their chosen athlete with a certain amount of money for every minute the person spends completing the triathlon.  The sponsors may choose any amount they wish – 50 cents, R1, R5, R10 … the sky is the limit! Those willing to donate towards this exciting camp can do so by clicking here.
