Free State Lifesaver Needs Your Help

Free State Lifesaver Needs Your Help

Personal message

Sulinke (17), from Bloemfontein, was selected for the national team to represent South Africa at the RLSS Commonwealth Festival of Lifesaving, taking place from 21-23 November 2019 at Leeds United Kingdom. An awesome opportunity for a Free State girl. Sulinke has a passion for lifesaving and is putting in a lot of practice as well as community hours to be selected at this level. In lifesaving it is not only about competing but also to give back to the community and therefore they are also required to do community service. She is the youngest participant for this team. She achieved a bronze medal last year in Adelaide Australia at the world championships in the 200m super lifesaver. She is also South African record holder in this event at both junior and senior level. Quite an achievement at 16 years of ag!. To participate at this level there is a lot of costs involved and she would appreciate any support to make her dream come true and to use all opportunities to develop in the sport.  

The funding will be used to pay for travel ,meals, accommodation as well as travel kit .
Flights R 21 000, Accommodation and meals R 13500 (9 days) ,Travel kit R 2500
Visa R 4000 (Travel to JHB).

The donations will make a girl’s dream come true as we are not in a position to fund her for this tour. Also she will be exposed to a high level of competition that will develop her to become a force to recon with for the world championships in 2020.
