Brad Bing heads up a phenomenal organization Sporting Chance in Cape Town South Africa, which gives hope and opportunity to the youth in SA. Sport is huge in SA and is a country and people unifier anywhere in the world !
24 years ago Sporting Chance was formed to use sport to positively impact the lives of children in South Africa. Today Sporting Chance has grown to become one of the leading sports coaching and development organisations in South Africa.
Says Brad Bing : “For us, empowering our youth is to recognize the ability to use sport to break down the barriers of generations, cultures, race, gender and introduce education and learning initiatives. Through sport and team play many life-skills are identified and nurtured to bring about a positive change in society today.”
