Toyota South Africa Motors (TSAM) and the South African Sports Association for the Physically Disabled (SASAPD) are pleased to announce they have signed a three-year partnership to promote the sporting codes offered at Paralympic level for athletes with disabilities. SASAPD is considered to be a good platform for nurturing promising and ambitious athletes with physical disabilities and visual impairment.
The partnership, among other elements, will see Toyota donating a Quantum to a deserving SASAPD-affiliated school over the next three years.
To maximise impact on SASAPD athletes, Toyota has also challenged some of its long-standing partners to pledge various means of support to the sporting body.
“We are grateful to Toyota for the generous and beneficial partnership, and their support is not something we take lightly, says Moekie Grobbelaar, President of SASAPD.
Toyota also named Paralympian silver medallist Ntando Mahlangu as its latest brand ambassador at SOMI. “We have always been behind our national sport – whether it is rugby, cycling, motorsport, football or athletics. It is also because the values of perseverance, leadership and endurance – which are synonymous with sport – are at the core of the Toyota brand and its history in South Africa,” added Grobbelaar.this is my text
