Bloemfontein – Grey College was presented with an outdoor gym sponsored by Coca-Cola for winning the 30 Minute Heroes Challenge last season.

The Bloemfontein school won the challenge after a staggering 199 students completed the course within the allotted time period.

They have won a state of the art, fully installed outdoor gymnasium which will allow their students to remain active throughout the school year.

Meanwhile, the sponsors also held another Heroes Challenge and the school came short of bettering the record they previously set, which disadvantaged them from winning four cricket scoreboards worth R30 000.

As the winners of the challenge last season, they had to beat their record and have 200 pupils complete the challenge, but only 190 finished the challenge this time round.

Deon Scheepers, Grey College head master was happy that his boys once again gave their all in the challenge.

Coca-Cola has been sponsoring the T20 Schools tournament for two years. On top that, they added the 30 minutes Heroes Challenge for those who do not play cricket.

This challenge is played all over the country and Scheepers said it is great to have this challenge here.

Scheepers added that the school is working hard for the holistic developments.

“It’s also good of Coca Cola to donate the gym to us after we have won and set the record. This (the gym) is just one part of the holistic development that I am talking about for our boys.”

“It’s all about a healthy lifestyle and moving out of the gyms and excise on these amazing equipment that was kindly Coca Cola donated to us. We are thankful.”
