Help Joel Stransky raise funds for Vision 2020

During the 2017 Absa Cape Epic, legendary Springbok rugby playerJoel Stransky crashed out of the race with serious injuries.

He was back in the saddle in 2018 and will be competing again this year to raise funds for his latest project.

Stransky launched the LumoHawk Foundation in 2013 to raise funds to help underprivileged children with a focus on educational and sporting needs.

The latest LumoHawk project is Vision 2020, which focuses on providing children with much-needed eyecare.

We applied all our resources to one big project now and that involves checking the eyesight of underprivileged children and supplying glasses to those in need. You know when we started this journey we didn't realise the extent of how many children would need glasses.

Joel Stransky - Founder, LumoHawk Foundation

We envisaged it might be about 12 to 15%. I think it's going to be closer to 25% of the underprivileged children out there who need glasses for whatever reason.

Joel Stransky - Founder, LumoHawk Foundation

Stransky says they're partnering with Absa, who will match every Rand raised during the week.

For information on how to donate, go to Lumohawk.co.za and follow the links.

Hit that link now and support us this week because it doubles it, really.
