Recently the J9 Foundation in conjunction with the Charles Glass Society raised R30 000 in order to aid people suffering from Motor Neuron Disease.

Among the big bitters of the evening Darius Steyn of Lindsay Saker paid R15 000 for an autographed Springbok Jersey.

Former players such as Jimmy Powell and Hendrik Meyer were in attendance.

The J9 Foundation was formed by the rugby legend, Joost van der Westhuizen in aid of those suffering from the same form of fatal illness that he was diagnosed with early 2011, Motor Neuron Disease.

Joost has created a platform through this foundation to allow people, companies and friends to support the quality of life programs available within this organisation.

The J9 Foundation fosters intimate dialogues with those living with ALS, their families and caregivers. Our approach draws from our hands-on experience, as we continually strive to understand the overwhelming dynamics that ALS families endure. We welcome all of your questions and requests.
