Golfers and special supporters made the Atlas team trip to the USA Sevens in Las Vegas a huge success. Delighted for our hosts that USA stormed to a win at the Sevens, and hugely grateful to our donors for pledging $42,000 to our work with disadvantaged kids in Memphis.

Gavin Hastings and Ian Robertson (flanking) with Kieera Tuggle and Shane Young from the Atlas supported Memphis Inner City Rugby Programme. 

Kierra Tuggle who started playing rugby a few years ago, and credits it with turning her life around, came to talk to our guests over lunch. She is seen here with Shane Young who founded the work in Memphis and remains a coach while running the programme full time. 

Victor Ubogu joined the golfers

A fun 18 holes were enjoyed by all the golfers, and our thanks to the Las Vegas Country Club for hosting our tournament. Through sponsorship from SAP Callidus Cloud, a silent auction and a generous donation from a great Sevens supporter, the Atlas Foundation raised over $42,000. There will be some costs to cover, but the profit will all go to support our work in the US.
