SHARKIE, KwaZulu-Natal’s much-loved mascot of the Cell C Sharks, was a hit at the JumpStart Challenge on Sunday 5 March, at Holla Trails Sharkie really brought the sunshine and smiles, enthusiastically cheering participants across the finish line and presenting finishing medals.

Karen Wells, head of Mr Price Foundation, thanked all our communities, partners and organisations for pledging their support to the JumpStart Challenge and for empowering unemployed youth with new skills and opportunities for employment. “The foundation and its beneficiaries are highly appreciative of the fantastic support we received,” Karen said. 

The JumpStart Challenge was made possible with funding and support from Mr Price Foundation’s partners: Mr Price Sport, SPAR, Absa, as well as City Logistics, Fineline Technologies and CMH Nissa Ballito. It was supported by community groups, including Drivetrain Academy and Manifest Yoga Studio, while enthusiastic teams from Miladys, Mr Price Sport and Mr Price Money also held virtual events. A special thank you also goes to East Coast Radio for going the extra mile to promote the JumpStart Challenge.  

Thank you one and all for making every step or cycle count!
