SUPPORT SA TALENT™ was originally spearheaded in 2018 by PROTOUCH™ – the #1 Continental Road Cycling Team in Africa – to recognise talented athletes and, provide a platform to generate funding for South African Road Cyclists.
During the Covid-19 Lockdown, PROTOUCH™ and RUBBER DUC – South Africa’s Premier Acoustic Dance Music Act – collaborated to bring together Athletes and Artists – in an attempt to raise some awareness and solve some of the challenges being experienced by their respective industries.
While both perform on completely different stages, this pandemic has brought both the sporting and music events industry worldwide to a halt and, as both are heavily dependent on attendance/ participation at events as well as brand endorsement support, the ability to earn income over this time had seized.
“Our intent was always to replicate the model for other sporting codes – through partnerships and enable more South African Athletes – but now we have extended this to include Artists too. We are hoping to unleash the passion that South Africans have for Sport, Music and the Arts – to assist in funding these talented people”. Rebecca Eliot – Founder.
