Lifestyle Crossfit in partnership with Mams Mall and USN will host their first annual charity drive, Aerobics Foundation to raise donations to help a child in need in Mamelodi East. Inspired to be the agents of change in their community founders of Lifestyle Crossfit Kgomotso Mosehla, Paul Masemola and Buyi Monyekani aim to create awareness about social ills that affect the community of Mamelodi East using sport.
Kgomotso says they were largely inspired by the children in their communities. “After seeing some children going to school without proper uniform, we wanted to change that and thought of Aerobics foundation in a bid to collect donations of school uniforms”. He also says that, after realising that sport can be used as a tool to curb alcohol and drug abuse, teenage pregnancy and other destructive activities that children are exposed to, this became their approach.
“Often children are exposed to activities that impact them negatively, sport creates a positive and healthy environment. Exposing them to different sports that they can participate in will also expose them to various opportunities. It further encourages a healthy lifestyle amongst them” he says.
Lifestyle Crossfit located in Mamelodi East Ext 20 on Solomon Mahlangu drive was established in 2017. The trio prides itself for being one of the first gym to introduce bootcamp, dance, steps, cardio amongst the activities that are offered in their facility in Mamelodi East. It has since grown popular amongst locals and surrounding areas, Nelmaphius and Baviaanspoort.
Aerobics foundation will be taking place on Saturday, 28 September 2019 at Mams Mall in Mahube. The event is free to the public and attendees are encouraged to donate school uniforms, and other essential school needs.
