On 25 June 2022, the young people in Christ from the greater Mbombela region of the Mpumalanga-Limpopo Apostle area converged at Valencia Recreational Facilities in Mbombela for a sports day to commemorate Youth Day.
The main aim of the event was to raise funds for the Masakhe Foundation in keeping with the #Dare2Care campaign which has become synonymous with the young people movement. The camaraderie on display from brethren of all age groups who pitched for the event was pleasing to see.
On the sports fields, though the football and netball games were meant for fun, some of the talent on display was such a marvel to watch. In the end, all players accounted themselves fairly well and were winners by virtue of participating.
Speaking on the sidelines, one parent urged organisers to plan similar events in future to keep the young people focused on church activities. Echoing the same sentiment, in his address, Apostle J Mabaso encouraged attendees to mobilise more young people to support events that are organised on their behalf.
Proceeds from participation fees and sales of food items were all donated to the Masakhe Foundation.
