On the 13th of April 2019 BFS Fund Manager Pvt (Ltd) together with Sports on the Move Foundation pulled the 2nd Ananias Charity Fundraising para-athletics event which aims to assist the beneficiaries of the foundation towards their road to Tokyo 2020 and empowering their skills for life after Sport careers.
The athletics day was filled with fun activities. Definitely the most attraction was being in the shoes of the T11 (Blind Athletes) of running with a blindfold. Being a fun filled event but many participants walked away with the fundamental rule of “Sport first and Disability second” in mind. They have applause the Paralympic athletes as true heroes of the Nation who always goes out to make the country proud.
This year’s event has attracted many corporate companies with so much understanding of the cause towards this activity. The main sponsor of the event was Standard Bank, who also had an honour to award the Gold medallist Ananias Shikongo with a decent house after the Rio 2016 achievement.
BFS Fund Manager Pvt (Ltd) has also confirmed that the event will be an annual event so that together with the Sport on the Move Foundation will reach out to different athletes that need the support. They are assured that Sport on the Move Foundation will filter down to everyone connected with the movement, offering some of the less fortunate athletes the opportunity to reach their dreams and even create a platform for them to reach their full potential at International level.
