STENDEN SOUTH AFRICA will once more host the “Anything That Floats” raft challenge this year, after a four-year hiatus.

Stenden South Africa’s Enactus group will be collaborating with the National Sea Rescue Institute (NRSI) in generating a sense of community fun and spirit.

“It’s on Saturday March 25, and there will be random spot prizes,” said Stenden South Africa Enactus president Ruan Venter. “First to sink, most creative raft, most team spirit.”

According to Enactus project manager Kyra Fox, Buco has been contacted about supplying floating drums. Fox, who is in her second year of hospitality management, said the funds raised will be split 50/50 between the NSRI and Enactus.

Enactus hosts events such as these to raise funds that the organisation may continue with their community engagement outreach programmes within the community.

“There will be first, second and third prizes up for grabs, and we’ll also have transport on offer for some,” Fox said.

Enactus is an international non-profit organization that brings together student leaders who are dedicated to applying and sharing skills and power of innovative action to advance the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
