Collaboration Optimist for the Great Optimist Race

Personal message

Support the Collaboration Optimist dinghy in The Great Optimist Race and help us not only make it first across the finishing line, but also onto the Fundraising Leaderboard.

We are raising funds for Songo, which has humble beginnings: from a dream of providing a safe space for children to play on bikes, it has evolved into a Sports and Academic support programme focused on creating a long-term impact for the children in Kayamandi, Stellenbosch.

Our key objective is that every child that comes through the songo.info program goes on to be a confident, well-rounded individual who is gainfully employed and a contributing member of the community. We currently have 50 children from ages 6 to 24 years within the songo.info family.

The Great Optimist Race

The Great Optimist Race Logo

The  Great Optimist Race 2019  will be held during the Cape Town International Boat Show, on October 19th.  Between 35 and 40 Optimist Children’s dinghies will be raced by adults ( Celebrities, Medical Survivors & Captains of Industry)  not only for glory, but also to raise money and awareness for the charity of their choice . The Race will be a FANTASTIC and UNIQUE fundraising event , spreading Optimism and Hope across so many sectors. All the funds raised by each boat will be split between The Little Optimist Trust and the charity supported by that boat. 

The event will take place at the V & A Waterfront so come down to support your boat and see who walks away with the coveted trophy.

 Please donate and BackaBoat by selecting the boat and charity you would like to support.   Challenge your friends and corporates to match or better your donation, and help us to help other people.
