Rugby Rising Back Ethans Rugby Journey Campaign

Dear Family and Friends,

I hope this message finds you well. We need your help to make Ethanโ€™s dream of becoming a profession rugby player a reality! Your help will hold immense significance for my son, Ethan who is a dedicated and exceptionally talented rugby player.

As a proud parent, I have witnessed firsthand the passion and commitment that Ethan has poured into his rugby journey. He has played A team rugby at Rondebosch Boys since Gr.8 and this year had huge success in the 1st XV team. He's an exceptionally talented utility back player and can kick for poles with both his left and right foot with perfection. His hard work and dedication has recently presented him with an incredible opportunity to attend a world-class rugby academy in Stellenbosch (SASRII). This opportunity arose unexpectedly and at very short notice, catching us unprepared financially. He will be studying for his degree in Sports Management online while attending the Rugby academy and we will be funding the degree.

Attending this prestigious academy would provide Ethan with unparalleled training, exposure to top-level coaches, and the chance to compete alongside some of the most promising young rugby players from around the world. It is an opportunity of a lifetime that will shape his future in the sport and open doors to even greater achievements.

However, the financial implications of this opportunity are significant. The costs associated with the programme, accommodation, travel, and other necessary expenses are beyond our current means. This is where I humbly request your support. Your contribution, no matter the size, can make a world of difference in helping Ethan seize this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

By supporting Ethan's journey to the rugby academy, you will not only be investing in his future in the sport but also becoming an integral part of his pursuit of excellence. Your generosity will enable him to focus wholeheartedly on his training and make the most of this extraordinary chance to learn from the best in the field. He is passionate about this game and has dreamed about being a profession player since he was a little boy! Ethan is one hundred percent committed to grabbing this opportunity and making sure it takes him to new heights.

To contribute or discuss further details, please feel free to reach out to me directly at 0769138093. Any support you can provide will be immensely appreciated and will have a lasting impact on Ethanโ€™s rugby aspirations.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this urgent appeal. Your support will not only help Ethan fulfill his potential but will also serve as a testament to the power of community and the belief in nurturing young talent.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Simone Gordon
