The Covid-19 lockdown periods throughout the country during 2020 severely restricted Red Beach Surf Club’s ability to raise funds. However, the club is about to bounce back with an ambitious project labelled the Enduro Fundraiser.
It will involve the entire club, from 10-year-old Juniors through to Masters and will take place on the water at Red Beach on Saturday 14 November.
The challenge for club members is to collect sponsorship and then complete as many kilometres as they can, paddling swimming or rowing over a set course, for either two hours or three hours, depending on age. Each participant gets to choose their discipline … ski, board, swim, run, surf canoe or surf boat.
The club’s Juniors will be paddling from 1.00 pm – 3.00 pm, while the Seniors and Masters will be out on the water from 1.00 pm – 4.00 pm.
All funds generated will be channelled back into the club to meet the needs of the surf lifeguard programmes as well as the Junior and Senior development programmes.
At a get-together in the clubrooms at the conclusion of the Enduro, prizes will be awarded in each age division for the most sponsorship collected and the best individual costumes.
