The Walt Disney Company Africa has selected Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala to front the fourth phase of Disney XD’s Aim High, Disney XD’s (DStv Channel 304) exciting initiative designed to inspire a generation of kids to get the most out of life, try new things and be the best they can be.
The Campaign offers fans the chance to win a ‘once in a lifetime’ experience with inspirational mentors.
Aim High is an initiative that gives kids across the country the chance to win a series of mentorships in a different field to learn how to realise their true potential. Seeking inspiration from world class sportsmen and musicians, Disney XD’s Aim High gives kids everywhere the chance to do what they love and love what they do. Whatever the route, the important thing is to Aim High.
Tshabalala achieved fame when he scored the opening goal for Bafana Bafana against Mexico in the FIFA 2010 World Cup. “It is a great honour to be selected as Aim High mentor. As a child I had great mentors who gave me opportunities that changed my life. It is great to know that I now have the opportunity to return the favour,” he said.
Entries open 03 May 2013.
To enter, fans simply need to visit the Disney XD Aim High microsite* or go to MXit >Tradepost > Entertainment > Disney > Disney XD before 13 June 2013 and answer a multiple choice question and then tell us why they should be selected for this incredible opportunity to learn from an international soccer star.
