VREDENBURG:_ It’s very sad, but the time is running out for the 17-year-old girl, who wants to defend her SA title overseas.
Skeigh-lee Jenecker, a Grade 12 pupil from Vredenburg High School, also has to rely on public donations, because her mother is currently unemployed. The girl has been included in the SA National team, which will participate in the Junior World Kickboxing Championship, and this prestigious competition will be held from 30 September to 9 October in Venice, Italy.
“Sleigh-Lee’s big dream of being selected for the SA team came true when she participated in the SA kickboxing championship. This competition took place from 12 to 15 May 2022 at the Diaz Beach Resort in Mossel Bay.
TOMORROW IT CAN BE YOUR TURN
In addition to silver, she also won gold, earning her the coveted national kickboxing title in her division.
“It is an honor for me to have the opportunity to represent South Africa on such a large international platform”, the daughter said.
However, her dream could now lead to shipwreck if she does not get financial support very quickly. According to Natasha, her stay overseas must be paid for on July 10, 2022. “Money I unfortunately do not have,” she added. “I sent letters to various businesses, and even radio stations, without any response. “Maybe a radio interview helps, because there’s someone out there who cares, but no one has responded, I don’t know what not to do anymore.” .
West Coast Sports Solutions even asked Radio West Coast, the local regional radio broadcaster, John Cloete, if he could not help with an interview with Natasha and Skeigh-Lee? . However, like other radio station managers, Cloete decided not to respond to my whatsapp. If South Africans do not open their wallets for the champion, Skeigh-lee’s dream will remain a dream, which is very sad.
Any donation, no matter how small, will be able to help the daughter … If you want to help, you can pay the donation at
