Sparrow Schools 5th Annual Spinathon – Spina Nathi and educate a child

Our Joburg CSI client, Sparrow Schools Educational Trust hosted its fifth annual Spinathon fundraising event in partnership with Virgin Active at Milpark Virgin Active, Johannesburg.

The Spinathon took place this weekend, 23 May 2015 and featured the crew from Isibaya, DJ Monotone, Lection, Michallay Brown who is Miss Earth 2014, Element – Water.

The Spinathon is all about raising funds for Sparrow Schools’ Educate a Child Programme (EAC) – a school fee subsidy plan for its learners. Participants pay R100 to spin for an hour. Many of their learners are from places of safety, child headed households or disadvantaged homes where parents cannot afford the special education that their children need. The EAC program provides education and support to children and youth experiencing life and learning difficulties.

The fun hour long session on the bike helped tick more than one box off the participants’ feel good list. Sparrow Schools wanted supporters to feel fulfilled for making a difference in a child’s life while contributing towards their own fitness plans.
