PRESS RELEASE Hercules Trophy South Africa
Johannesburg, 17th July 2012. The inaugural Hercules Trophy event will be held at SuperSport Park in Centurion, Gauteng on International Mandela Day on 18th July. After the success of this unique concept in Europe and the Middle East, the Hercules Trophy organisation has chosen International Mandela Day as the best date to launch the inter-company competition in South Africa.
About 50 business teams (of 7 people per team) are committed to the corporate sporting team day. Olympic Team South Africa will attend the event and will contribute their “67 minutes” for Mandela Day just a day before they depart for the London 2012 Olympics. The Olympic Athletes together with the corporate athletes will be sending a loud clear message to their fellow South Africans to “Make Every Day a Mandela Day” whilst packaging hundreds of items of sporting equipment, including items donated by the athletes themselves, destined for six under-privileged schools adopted by Hercules Trophy South Africa.
