Personal message

Dear Family and Friends,

I hope this message finds you well. We need your help to make Ethan’s dream of becoming a professional rugby player a reality! Your help and generosity will hold immense significance for my son, Ethan who is a dedicated and exceptionally talented rugby player. While he possesses exceptional talent, it is worth noting that he also embodies humility, a strong sense of faith, genuine care, and kindness towards everyone he encounters.

As a proud parent, I have witnessed first hand the passion and commitment that Ethan has poured into his rugby journey. Ethan's unwavering dedication and enthusiasm is truly admirable. Since Grade 8, he has consistently excelled in A team rugby at Rondebosch Boys, culminating in remarkable achievements as a member of the 1st XV team this year. Ethan's exceptional skills as a versatile utility back player are evident, as he demonstrates flawless precision in his ability to kick for poles using both his left and right foot.

His hard work and dedication has recently presented him with an incredible opportunity to attend a world-class rugby academy in Stellenbosch (SASRII). This opportunity arose unexpectedly and at very short notice, catching us unprepared financially. He will be studying for his degree in Sports Management online while attending the Rugby academy and we will be funding the degree.

Attending this prestigious academy would provide Ethan with unparalleled training, exposure to top-level coaches, and the chance to compete alongside some of the most promising young rugby players from around the world. It is an opportunity of a lifetime that will shape his future in the sport and open doors to even greater achievements.

However, the financial implications of this opportunity are significant. The costs associated with the programme, accommodation, travel, and other necessary expenses are beyond our current means. This is where I humbly request your support. Your contribution, no matter the size, can make a world of difference in helping Ethan seize this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

By supporting Ethan's journey to the rugby academy, you will not only be investing in his future in the sport but also becoming an integral part of his pursuit of excellence. Your generosity will enable him to focus wholeheartedly on his training and make the most of this extraordinary chance to learn from the best in the field. He is passionate about this game and has dreamed about being a professional player since he was a little boy! Ethan is one hundred percent committed to grabbing this opportunity and making sure it takes him to new heights.

To contribute or discuss further details, please feel free to reach out to me directly at 0769138093. Any support you can provide will be immensely appreciated and will have a lasting impact on Ethan’s rugby aspirations.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this urgent appeal. Your support will not only help Ethan fulfill his potential but will also serve as a testament to the power of community and the belief in nurturing young talent.
