The Chris Burger Petro Jackson Players' Fund, also referred to as the Players' Fund, provides assistance and support in various ways to the brave young men who have sustained catastrophic and life changing injuries whilst playing the game of rugby in South Africa. Some examples of this assistance is as follows:
- The provision and maintenance of mobility equipment such as powered and manual wheelchairs, special beds, mattresses and cushions, assistive devices etc.
- The Addressing of accessibility challenges that wheelchair users face daily.
In addition to this the Players' Fund is also involved with fundraising and events, as it is partially dependent on income from these activities in order to continue providing much needed assistance to its many recipients.
The Players' Fund also develops & implements national programmes to make rugby safer in South Africa. See www.boksmart.co.za for further information on this.
