Tifosi Sports and On Performance Shoes give young athletes a helping hand
The iconic former leader of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, was himself an athlete. In fact, the much beloved Madiba once said that “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand.”
We echo the words of our late president. We know what an important role sports has played in our country and it most certainly has served to unite people from different races, religions and backgrounds, to rally behind their country – and to test their own athletic prowess.
Tifosi Sports and On Performance Shoes are aware of the impact sports has on the country’s various communities, particularly those areas that are often remote or rural. This is why Tifosi and On are delighted to have made a donation of 10 pairs of On Performance Shoes to the Queen Mo Foundation.
The Foundation is led by three passionate women, headed up by Morongwa Dlamini, based in Mpumalanga Mbombela. This is an area with impoverished communities and where there is a strong need for the promotion of healthy lifestyles for both the youth and senior citizens.
Queen Mo Foundation identifies and assists talented athletes in fulfilling their dreams of competing and dominating the world of athletics. The foundation mainly sources funding for the rural communities of Mbombela. There are a lot of things the Foundation has to provide for: running shoes, transport race registrations, soccer boots, licence fees, accommodation, bursaries, training coaches, and equipment.
Tifosi and On Performance Shoes are proud to be part of the journey of these young athletes in making their dreams real.
Strive for a brighter future, young athletes, and continue to run on clouds! May you continue to go beyond.
