Trip to South Africa





My 15year old son is on his way to South Africa to represent Gillespies sports Adelaide and Australia in Cricket they leave on the 11th of April until the 30th of April 2018 he has put in alot of time and energy into his personal training, and Academy training, which he got selected to go. I would so love to go with him as this is a massive achievement in his life. His dad will never get to see this as he is in heaven. I would really love to be able to support him with this new venture in his life.
I would really appreciate your help to pay for my flights and accomodation and entry to his 8 games of his cricket. I need $3000 by the 30th September 2017.   $3000 on the 15th November 2017 and the final balance on the 10 January 2018.

Just a bit about my son, he lost his dad when he was 10 weeks old. So never got to know him. I have done everything I can to get him into his sport.
Michael started to play football when he was 5yrs old with Mallala Magpies, and now is playing for Jervois.
Michael started playing cricket for Unity college Murray Bridge in 2012 and went on to play cricket with Wanderers Murray Bridge in 2015/2016 season. He then moved on to play for Monarto cricket club 2016/2017 season. Michael got the coaches award and fielding award aswell. From there my now partner said we should get him some coaching. So we decided to take him to Gillespies sports Centre, where he recieves personal training one on one once a week. He has improved imensley going from just bowling to now bowling upto 115km/hr. The chance to do Acadamey training came up so we took the oppurtunity to give him a go with this and has just blossemed from this. He then was selected in the top 30 to go to South Africa, All of his airfares ect are paid for from his Public trust. On Monday 14/8 he started trials for Tea Tree Gully which he is hoping to get into and futher his career. His mission is to try and play one day for Australia. And his career as a sports instructor. We travel 180km in a day for his personal training, we also have 180km every 2nd Sunday. And now with his trials is 170km round trip, if he gets into Tea Tree Gully it will be 4 times a week we will travel for his cricket. so any where upto 600km per week
So if you could help out to get me to South Africa with him I would be ever so grateful. Thanks
If you could please share this and maybe even hit up a business or two for me that would be fantastic
