At an event organised by Bos Sport and held in Green Point last week, funds were handed over to a number of NGOs. Since its launch in 2013, BOS Sport has donated 5c from every bottle sold to their Go Bos Fund. The aim of the fund is to develop resources and initiatives which encourage the youth of South Africa to engage and participate in sports. Through the Go Bos Fund, the company donated R10 000 each to five NGOs. At a handover event held on Friday May 19, representatives of each non-profit organisation were accompanied by youth currently enrolled in their programmes. The event took place at The Station, a new functional and personal training facility based in Green Point, where they completed a series of fun challenges followed by a braai.
