The TAG Foundation is driven by the spirit of #ubuntu and the will to make a difference in the lives of competent learners from financially challenged home backgrounds.

Tagger, James Gerber, son of Jonathan Gerber & Traci Gerber, founders of our TAG (Travel Assignment Group) TAG Foundation is on a mission! Not only to excel, set records and as his Twitter bio reads, “A triathlete trying to do his thing!”, he wants to give back with your help to change the life of a youngster, through education.
Read his brief below, check comments for the relevant links, that will have you part of a very special journey. Please join us, the #TAGtribe needs you.

“Hi Everyone
Please would you take time to read my latest idea I’ve had and how I’m going to combine my triathlon journey with helping the less fortunate.
In 2009, my parents Jonathan Gerber (a King Edward VII School Old Boy) & Traci Gerber started TAG foundation. Initially they just wanted to change lives and make a difference in the world allowing a handful of boys the right to an education. Over the years TAG has grown tremendously, they now sponsor 38 boys & 9 young ladies at Parktown Girls High School.
My campaign will be to raise enough money to financially support a boy through King Edward VII School for five years. Boarding and School fees. This will mean I need to raise R700K. It takes a village to raise a child. I can’t do this alone!”

James recently returned from Austria Ironman where he placed:
Top 20 overall
First AG 18-24
9:32:02
He can’t wait for the next one! It’s going to be the biggest race yet.
8 October Kona, Hawaii 🏝

On Saturday afternoon he was interviewed on #eNCA by Nicole Kente and had the wonderful opportunity to tell a bit about his story. In the comments find the link to the full interview.

Every child deserves to dream, all it takes is an opportunity and for someone to believe in them. Please share as much as you can and pass it on! Can’t wait for you to be part of this journey with James and the TAG Family!

Thank you so much to those who have already donated to James’ #matchkit campaign link & to to those who support the #tagfoudation through generous sponsorships, donations, care & love for our awesome Taggers who attend our fantastic partner Schools, KES & Parktown Girls’. Together we are stronger.
