The South African Hall of Fame Legacy Project transforms lives and empowers South Africa's youth

The South African Hall of Fame Legacy Project is a beacon of hope, illuminating the paths of talented young South Africans like Simphiwe. Our mission is to empower these exceptional individuals through education, sports, and the arts, shaping them into future leaders of our nation.

The CEO Challenge is an initiative by the South African Hall of Fame, in collaboration with Nashua, to support the Legacy Project and empower more children like Simphiwe.

The Legacy Project: Lighting the Way

We believe every child deserves the opportunity to flourish. 

The Legacy Project bridges the gap between potential and possibility by providing access to educational resources, mentorship, and support programs.  Partnering with industry leaders, we unlock opportunities and cultivate a brighter future for South Africa's youth.

Together, we can empower the next generation of South African leaders.

Simphiwe's Journey: A Testament to Resilience

Despite the immense challenges of losing his limbs to septicemia as a child and being abandoned by his mother, Simphiwe demonstrates unwavering determination. Raised by his grandmother, his talent and dedication to athletics recently shone at the National Championship of The South African Sports Association for the Physically Disabled and Visually Impaired. He won his category with a new 100m SA record and also claimed gold in the 200m sprint and javelin throw.

Simphiwe's story exemplifies the transformative power of the Legacy Project. This young man's unwavering spirit and exceptional talents shine brightly, inspiring others to embrace their own potential.
