LEAP Science and Maths School
To make a real difference, BSG believes that investment in education is vital for the future of South Africa. BSG continues to partner with the LEAP Science and Maths School who aim to transform educationally disadvantaged communities in South Africa through mathematics and science-focused education initiatives.
BSG has chosen the sport of triathlon as a platform to enhance its education-based social responsibility programme by offering a sport that can be entered into relatively easily. Healthy minds need healthy bodies and, as an individual can enter the sport in a team format (one only needs to know how to swim or cycle or run to start with), there is a great opportunity for many school children to enter the sport.
At this year’s Triseries all race participants automatically become “Education Heroes” by donating R10 of their entry fee towards LEAP, helping us reach our target. Participants can also raise additional funds for LEAP by requesting their network of friends, colleagues and family make a pledge through the BSG ‘MyPledge’ initiative on their behalf. In this way the BSG Multisport community can make a significant contribution towards building a new school for LEAP.
For more information on how to pledge funds and stand a chance to be recognised as an 'educational hero' by reaching certain fund raising target levels, please follow this link to your MyPledge page.
