Tens to boost Chris Burger Petro Jackson Players’ Fund

December 19, 2014 – 3:36 pm |

The takealot.com Cape Town Tens has announced The Chris Burger Petro Jackson Players’ Fund as the official charity partner of the 2015 event.

The Chris Burger Petro Jackson Players’ Fund supports the fallen heroes of rugby, those who have sustained catastrophic head, neck or spinal cord injuries whilst on the field. 2015 marks the 35th anniversary of the organisation which was started by its current Chairman – Morné du Plessis and his Western Province Team mates in 1980, following the death of team mate and friend Chris Burger during a game.

The Players’ Fund currently has 106 recipients throughout South Africa, all of whom have two things in common – a future confined to a wheelchair and a love for the sport that can be likened to a religion in SA.

With close to 2500 rugby players taking part in the tournament, safety is of paramount importance. With the introduction of The Fund’s National Rugby Safety Programme Bok Smart – a joint initiative with SA Rugby – at the tournament this will ensure that the safest and smartest form of the game is being played.

“We are incredible happy to partner with the Chris Burger Petro Jackson Player’s Fund for the 2015 event”, said Bob Skinstad, Co-Founder of the Cape Town 10s. “Charity plays a big part in the tournament and what better way to give back than to those who have lived and breathed the game of rugby themselves.”

To give back to rugby’s own add R10 to your payment when booking your tickets at www.webtickets.co.za – all proceeds will be given to the Players’ Fund or visit the Players’ Fund Facebook Page to find out more.
