A golden opportunity

A golden opportunity

Personal message

My name is Jené Bergstedt. I am 42 years of age and I am a Gym for life member. My 13-year-old son, Leigh and 9-year-old daughter Jodi are both gymnasts. We reside in Kylemore Stellenbosch.

Leigh represented Western Province in 2018 at the Gym games in Gauteng.

Being able to exercise with my kids is a privilege and I enjoy movement.

The three of us are participating at the 16th World Gymnaestrada 2019 in Dornbirn, Austria. This event is from the 7th - 13th of July.
We would need the funds by 7th July 2019

This event is a once in a lifetime opportunity and is, unfortunately, a self-funded event. Due to the cost involved, very few participants are able to attend.

The minimum estimated cost per person is R 30 000. This covers all flights, airport transfers, transport in Austria, visas, accommodation, meals, Team SA clothing and medical and travel insurance.

Through some fundraisers (Karaoke nights, Valentine's ball, raffles and selling of food) and some savings, we managed to raise most of the monies.  We were blessed to cover our flights (R10 000 x3) and Gymnaestrada registration (R12 500 x3). 

But there are still expenses (team gear, costumes, accommodation, meals, etc.) that need to be sorted. Please help us secure the remaining funds in order to attend the event.
