Reach for a Dream

Reach for a Dream

At one point in your life you would have heard the words Reach For A Dream Foundation and perhaps you have brushed them aside or not paid it much attention. Did you know that for the last 21 years the Reach For A Dream Foundation has brought, joy, hope and healing to South African children aged between 3 and 18 years? All of these children have used their dreams to fight life-threatening illnesses such as cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, cancer, leukaemia and kidney infections to name but a few.

But how do they do it you may be asking yourself? Reach For A Dream distracts these tiny tots to young adults from the daily ritual of needles, hospitals and medication and offers them hope, joy and happiness through their struggles. The nature of these illness put huge pressures on these children and they are often in need of encouragement or a magical moment that will help them regain the magic of childhood that is so often lost to an illness.

What does every good foundation need? They need support and funds in order to make the lives of these ill children better. If you’re a golf enthusiast or if you are just starting out then why not come and join the Reach For A Dream Foundation for a game of American Scramble (9 holes) at their Golf Day on Friday 12 March 2010 at the River Club in Observatory, Cape Town.

Entry will cost your R200 per person or if you get 5 of your mates or colleagues, R1000 per team. This fee includes a game of golf, lunch and a gift bag on arrival (and who doesn’t like a gift bag??). Registration is from 10h00 to 10h30 and tee off begins promptly at 11h00 with a “shotgun start”. Lunch will be served from 13h00 and make sure you stay on because there is a auction from 15h00, a silent auction option will also be available for those who are unable to attend..
