Please help me get to the World Scout Jamboree 2019. I will be riding the Cape Town Cycle Tour, a 109km road race in March 2019, in my scout uniform, to raise funds.
The 24th World Scout Jamboree (WSJ), to be held at Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia, USA, from 22 July to 2 August 2019, will see a gathering of 165 national Scouting bodies, including Scouts South Africa. The South African contingent comprises 176 Scouts, five from my troop, the 2nd Hout Bay Scout Group will be going and I am one of them.
The theme of the 2019 Jamboree is “Unlock a new World” – something I will be doing through experiencing adventures, meeting new people, being exposed to different cultures and learning new skills, all of which I will bring back to South Africa to share with my troop and others.
I am trying to raise the R50 000, which is required to cover the cost of the trip in full, including a pre-Jamboree tour taking in New York and Washington. I am doing various small fundraising events and working for my uncle at Tuesday Surf Ski. But our big fundraising drive, is the 2019 Cape Town Cycle Tour, were myself and of the 3 boys will be riding, in our Scout uniform (not the latest anti-chaffe gear!).
I am asking for your help to get me to next year’s World Scout Jamboree. Please support me by sponsoring my ride.
