A team of ordinary people
doing extra ordinary things

Helping others doesn’t just make the world a better place, it also makes you better. It gives you a sense of purpose, satisfaction and makes you and the world a happier place.

Helping Communities in Need

Lace up for Change is a Cape Town based non-profit organization. At the heart of the organization you will find a passion for helping those in need by assisting them through self-empowerment. Sport is used to raise funds through events and as a tool to kick start growth as an individual and together as a team.


Together we can make a meaningful, positive change

Sport is a powerful tool that can be used to overcome socio-economic challenges and bring about positive change. It is known to transcend cultural, racial and religious divides and bring people and communities together.

In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.”

– Flora Edwards

Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to the youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”

– Nelson Mandela
