At 9Miles we believe in the power of partnerships in order to transform communities…

We recently facilitated two Community events during the school holidays in order to create positive and wholesome activities for youth, and keep them active and out of trouble during the school holidays…

STRANDFONTEIN FMC AQUA DAY:

A Holiday Fun Aqua Day in partnership with the Strandfontein FMC (Facilities Management Committee) and 350 children enjoyed fun activities such as kayaking, surfing, SUP, sandcastle building, beach volleyball, and soccer, and touch rugby.

In addition, the children (who ranged from 6-18) were treated to snacks and lunch, and received a goodie bag with water bottles from the City of Cape Town, as well as toothpaste and a toothbrush from Dr Ryan Muller from Mullers Dental Studio.

With 300+ kids and zero incidents, we would like to thank all the volunteers that assisted on the day, our 9Miles staff and students, our special partners viz. Mr. Robert Charles Quinn and his team at the Strandfontein FMC, Dr. Ryan Muller & his team from Mullers Dental Studio, Tamara from Blue Flag, Mario from Proudly StrandfonteinStrandfontein Lifesaving for the demonstrations and keeping everyone safe on the day, and all round great support from the City of Cape Town.

YMCA & JBC FOUNDATION BEACH DAY

We also offered surfing and kayaking to youth who participated in the Cape Flats YMCA and JBC Foundation Beach day…
