My name is Franswa Coetzer and I live in Polokwane, Limpopo. I am raising funds for my Father-in-law Hendrik Roodt to go the WPC World Championship in Lathi, Finland. He lives just outside of Hartebeesfontein NW. He is a pensioner receiving SASSA and his dream is to not just win the WPC Championship but to break and hold the 2 new World Records in his division in Powerlift and Bench Press.
My Father-in-law competed in the WPC World Powerlifting Congress South African Championship two weeks ago and broke both the Powerlift and Bench Press South African records. Now he has been invited to represent South Africa at the World Champion in Lathi Sports and Fair Center in Finland. He would like to go and obtain the two World Records.
Funds raised will help both my Father-in-law and his wife get to the World Championship.
Breakdown of costs:
Registration is €100
Plane tickets +- R20000
Accommodation +- R16000
Food +- R5500
Transportation +- R3000
BackaBuddy fees +- R3000
Registration is before 14 September and we would like to book and confirm plane tickets and accommodation by 10 October 2019.
Your donation will help the World Records to be held by a South African citizen.
Funds raised will come to my (Franswa Coetzer's) bank account as I am the one who has to make all the relevant bookings and payments for my Father-in-law to the World Championship in Finland and I am happy to share all proof of bookings and payments made.
