Personal message

My name is Jean Engelbrecht, the proud brother of a very special 30-year-old girl named Cindy from Centurion, South Africa.

 

Since birth people and doctors have told us that my little sister will not be able to do anything for herself. Our mother has done everything (from speech therapy to special professors) capable to give her a normal life as possible. Cindy has a can-do attitude with a bigger heart and it shows. She's not only one of South Africa`s top Down Syndrome Field Athletes but also the current Gauteng North Table Tennis Champion.

 

Cindy was nominated for the 2022 Tshwane Sportswoman of the year where se was runner up.

 

Other achivements this year:

- 2023 Gauteng North Downs Female player of the year

-Top Female Athlete at the 2023 Nationals

(Shotput, Discus, Javelin, 800m walk, 400m relay)

-No1 at the 2023 Table Tennis National 

(Singles and Dubbles)

- Lead role in The Sound Of Music performed at the Atterbury Theater

 

She represented South Africa in Portugal at the World Down Syndrome Athletics where she got 2 Silver and Bronze medals in shot put, discus and javelin. This year she did not only get South African colours for her athletics but also for her Table tennis. She also got a place to repesent South Africa at the 2024 Trisome Games in Turkey between 19 March-26 March.Her sports are a big part of her life and we try everything to keep her motivated and able to attend her sports. Cindy always strives to be the best but also helps and motivates her fellow contenders to be their best. We are currently not able to afford to pay for her tour to Turkey for the 2024 Trisome Games. Every little bit will help to keep our Wonder Woman`s dreams alive. 

 

We are striving to bring awareness to Down Syndrome and the lack of support from higher authorities in the Down Syndrome sports.

 

By reaching this target, Cindy will be able to live a dream and it will motivate her to reach higher and higher.
