Fundraising Campaign

Pledging to raise funds for Endurocad means that you will help us enable SA’s talent and unlock its full potential. In 2017 we raised R64 769 through our Sanlam Cape Town Marathon Fundraising campaign, thanks to YOUR SUPPORT. With the monies raised we could assist our athletes with various essential needs including accommodation, food subsidies, international race opportunities and pay tertiary education fees. One such case is that of Sylvin Dirkse, a promising 800m athlete with a dream of not only becoming an Olympian but also becoming World Class coach oneday. Endurocad facilitated Sylvin’s studies at ETA College paying tuition fees and allowing him to follow his dreams. See his story below.

“Hi there, I am Silvyn Dirkse. I grew up on a farm in Paarl, Western Cape. At the age of 8, we moved to Stellenbosch and it is here where we grew up and saw how hard our parents worked to support us (my twin brother Alwin and I) on our sporting journey. I started running in primary school and before long, it was my passion. I love competing against my friends, but I ultimately run because it makes me feel free and happy. Things did not always go well, but I got over it and it made me stronger. I have dreams of competing on the international athletics stage one day, because I work towards it every day. I also wish to give back to the sport through coaching and I am thankful that Endurocad is paying for my studies at ETA College where I can equip myself to become the best possible coach and a good citizen of my country.

My life changed completely when I met Coach Gregory Viljoen in 2014. It is amazing what impact having a coach and a support system can make. He opened up so many doors, and one of them was Endurocad. It is here where we learnt that through hard work, dedication and with the help of our support team, we can achieve our dreams. I will forever be thankful.”
