MAJOZI Paedspal  Optimist in the The Great Optimist Race

MAJOZI Paedspal Optimist in the The Great Optimist Race

Personal message

Support our MAJOZI Paedspal  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.

Paedspal is a public-private partnership programme that provides care and support for children living with life threatening and life limiting illnesses in the Western Cape. The name is a play on words with the ‘pal’ being a shortening of the word ‘palliative’ as well as a colloquial word for ‘friend’.

Our Skipper, MAJOZI, requires no introduction. He is a proudly South African musician from the coastal city of Durban, who wears his heart on his sleeve. Literally. His song, WAITING, has made him a household name, popular amongst all age groups.

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.
