Jump to South Africa Contestant Profile: Tiffany Froese

Recently we told you how you can win a trip for two to South Africa to participate in the Coca Cola 2010 Soccer Camp and cop two tickets to a World Cup soccer match (no clue what we’re talking about? Read the original story about the Jump to South Africa contest!). Not only is it an amazing prize, but the contest also encourages youth across Canada to fundraise for an amazing cause: the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program, which helps kids who can’t afford to play organized sports. Now, check out the profile of one amazing teen who is doing her part to help out: Tiffany Froese.


Tiffany’s Jump to South Africa!

Tiffany Froese is one of the many kids across Canada aged 13-16 participating in the Jump to South Africa contest. Her goal is to raise at least $3,000 to help kids in Canada participate in sport and recreation. Tiffany loves sports herself, and is determined to make a difference.


“I've grown up playing soccer my whole life, as my friend would say, it’s not just a sport it’s a passion. So when I heard about this opportunity to be able to watch a FIFA World Cup soccer match in South Africa, work on my skills, and support a worthy cause while I'm at it, I knew right away this was something I wanted to get involved with,” says Tiffany who is currently in second place to win the contest with a total of $1,795 raised! “People often focus on helping others across the seas, in third world countries, which is totally great, but sometimes we need to look at whats right under our nose. There are so many people here in Canada that are much less fortunate than we are, and being able to play on a sports team could end up meaning the world to some little kid. It would mean be a great experience/eye opener if I was able to go on this trip and experience a whole other culture while being able to play the sport I love.”


Tiffany welcomes donations on her personal Jump to South Africa web page. “I am also doing odd jobs around the community such as house sitting and dog walking. On April 10th I will be having a garage sale with proceeds going to the Jumpstart program," she adds. "Would I love to go to South Africa? Well yea, but if I don't win, at the end of the day I will still feel great that I was able to make a difference, no matter how small."

i wanted to make this post for those interested in fitness. you can post anything, whether that be sports match you saw , weight training, a marathon you want to run, progress you've made, or even questions and advice on goals you want to achieve (though i might not be a professional, i think i've listened to enough and have read enough by specialist and professionals to help others). good luck to all that are trying to improve themselves.

I do hip hop dancing and I'm also good at robot dancing. I'm not sure what it's called when people dance like when they move their bones in a way that makes it hit every beat in any electronic beat. But go on my profile and look at the video on there I posted and that's the type of dance I do along with hip hop.

Who's better? I vote FC Barcelona because Messi, Neymar and Suares are SUPER POWER (but not in Italy).
