"Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sports can create hope, where there was once only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination."

“Our company is in the realm of offering the opportunity for people to ride or run where legends found themselves in the sport arena. It is also born out of our innate desire to be part of an initiative to participate in community goodwill for our brand. Our collaboration with The Sports Trust provided us with an ideal partner to best execute what they have become champions at, of implementation of sustainable development projects with South African disadvantaged communities. It is our intention to continue to make promising South African athletes’ dreams become a reality.”

"Having high-achieving role models that come from your community is the best way to inspire young people to achieve their potential. This gift of a multipurpose sports court has fallen on fertile soil and it will be used to the maximum. Our wish is to produce competent, healthy learners with skills in our different sporting codes, which include netball, soccer, volleyball, cricket, scouts and indigenous games, and to create opportunities for learners. The fruits of this court will be revealed in the talent we produce. It helps learners to develop strong self-discipline, values and morals; to control their temper; to think about others and develop a sense of team spirit; to understand the importance of respecting rules and honouring responsibilities; and to appreciate that hard work is one of the main keys to success.
