The Sport on the Move Foundation supports extraordinary champions

In the end of 2015 an international team from Namibia, Germany and The Netherlands  came together in a Skype conference call. They discussed the opportunities to support Namibia’s and Africa’s fastest sprinter (T11) Ananias Shikongo. Not long after this first meeting the campagne #Run4Rio was born.

The foundation has developed from a fundraising campaign. Although limited in resources, it provided critical support when hardly any other support was available. As such it is believed to have had an extraordinary impact on the athletes’ performance and achievements in Rio. Now we are moving forward to Tokyo2020!
