South Africa Endurance Academy (Endurocad)

Endurocad focusses on the holistic development of young people who have a talent for distance running. Their core areas include focus on education (via bursaries), focus on skills and personal development and on enterprise development (for life after sport). The Endurocad’s Young Women Empowerment Program is aimed at developing, educating, coaching, and empowering young females between the ages of 14 and 18. With high rates of gender-based violence and increasing mental health issues, Endurocad uses athletics to provide a safe space for young females to learn new skills, become empowered, confident and develop healthy lifestyle choices as they transition into young women.
