Honouring a sports giant by helping his children.
On 23 September 2012, South Africa woke up to the shocking news that former WBO World Boxing Champion, Corrie Sanders had died. He was heavily wounded in an armed robbery at a restaurant in Brits the evening before, where his entire family were celebrating his nephew's 21st birthday. Sanders was wounded in the arm and stomach and died of his wounds in the early hours of the Sunday morning.
Sanders' former wife Suzette Sanders said Corrie died a hero, diving to protect his daughter from oncoming bullets. On 27 September 2012, three men were arrested by North West police for the robbery and murder. The case is continuing.

All who knew Corrie, spoke about his kind and gentle nature and his love of the game of Golf. He was a keen supporter of charity golf days, including the Good Morning Angels Golf Day and was always willing to do his part for others. Only after his death did it emerge that Corrie did not enjoy the financial benefit his illustrious career should have provided. His friends have decided to honor the sports hero by supporting his two children. A Trust Fund has been set up for his children and on 23 April, sports legends and friends will participate in a Golf Day at the Serengeti Golf and Wildlife Estate to raise funds for the trust. Everything is sponsored and every sent earned on the day will go towards the fund.
You can book a 4-ball at R8000,00 for three people to join a celebrity for a round of golf and lots of entertainment on the spectacular Serengeti course. Just email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dankie vir al jou hulp en ondersteuning.
Die golfdag het ontstaan agv kinders wat die nood van kinders besef het weens die afsterwe van hul vader.
Kis to Kids is dus 'n skool wat geld in samel wat in 'n trust inbetaal word vir Corrie se kinders. Die trust is klaar opgestel met trustees wat dan die opsie het op met oorleg van die familie die trust te behou en die geld te bestuur vir die voordeel van Corrie se kinders.
Die golfdag word op 23 April 2013 gehou op Serengeti Golf and Wildlife Wstate.
Daar is reeds met maatskappye bevestig vir finaniële hulp en donasies. Die doel is om ten minste R 500 000.00 in te samel en dan te oorhandig aan die kinders.
Metode van insamel is dus die golfdag se 4 balle: 34 4-balle wat verkoop word @ R 8000 00 per 4 bal. Elke vierbal sal dan ook 'n beroemde persoon (celeb) insluit, soos Naas Botha, Carlos Spencer, Kallie Knoetze ens.
Die poging word deur Serengeti en die Sport Hall of Fame onderskryf en gedryf.
Ons voel dat as 'n Hall of Famer, Corrie se nagedagtes 'n nasionale blootstelling moet geniet.
Daar is bv ook 'n dag by die skool waar al die kinders golfhemde teken wat dan geraam word en vir elke speler die dag oorhandig word. Die kinders word dan ook die dag deur Naas en Corrie se kinders toegespreek.
Daar is nog baie inligting, maar die kern is dat daar n Kids To Kids inisiatief is om geld in te samel vir Corrie se kinders en om 'n sport held te vereer.
