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.
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
As a non-profit with our footprint in Cape Town, Lace up for Change relies on donor funding to support our local projects. Your support enables our volunteers to continue helping communities in need. As a team we can ensure a brighter tomorrow for those struggling to find hope.
Covid 19 has highlighted the pre-existing social inequalities amongst communities. Through Lace up for Change you can make a meaningful difference now and forever.
Lace Up 4 Community
We find people in disadvantaged communities who are trying to uplift and support those around them and we give them the tools to do it.
We provide a warm meal and blankets to the less fortunate, while providing a safe environment to join us on a run through the community.

We work with schools in the country on their school feeding initiatives and help provide the children with resources to enable learning.
