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.
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. 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 Cape Town for The South African Down Syndrome Table Tennis Championships. 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.
Funds raised will be used to cover:
