Get Rodney to World Champs!

Get Rodney to World Champs!

Personal message

So it's that time of year again where our Dad needs to raise funds to go to Biathle World Champs. Biathle is a speed sport that consists of Run-Swim-Run. Biathle is a World Class sport and World Champs are held yearly. Rodney Westgate is 46 years young and lives in East London, SA. Every day he trains extremely hard to achieve his goals, one of them being to go to the Biathle World Champs in Florida this October. We honestly haven't met a person that is as determined as he is and we know that when he goes this year, he will once again make us proud. Biathle is a sport that isn't that well known, but hey... World Champs is World Champs. Last year he won the Gold medal and this year we are hoping that he will be able to retain his title.

We are hoping to raise funds for Rod to help him get to the USA to compete because we know that he will excel and make everybody proud. This year, world champs take place in Florida in the USA. It is very costly to get him to Worlds and every year we try a different way to raise money for him. This year, we would like to show him the power of social media and the fact that one doesn't have to know him to support him. We are so proud of him and we will continue to do whatever it takes to get him to World Champs. It's not every day that you can go around telling people that your Dad is the 2018 Biathle World champ and that he got a silver in the Relay. This year we are hoping that he will remain the Champ. He trains so hard every day to get to where he needs to be for World Champs and we are confident that he will make everyone proud. We don't have all the funds to get him there, but we will do our best to reach this target and help him because he is always there to help us as well as others close to him.

We are hoping to reach our target by October 2019 as Biathle World Champs take place from October 23rd-27th

There are many costs involved but we believe that the end target is not impossible to reach and with everyone's support we can get him to World Champs.

Some of the costs are:

All Flights: R20 000
Sports Kit: R1 500
Accommodation: R8 000
Entries: R1 500 

Total: +- R30 000

Anybody that knows Rodney will know that he deserves to go to World Champs. These donations would help him more than one will ever know and we can guarantee you that he would appreciate it all so much. All of the donations will go towards covering the above costs and ensuring that he gets his ticket to St Petersburg, USA.
