Top order international cricketer and Protea opening batsman Alviro Petersen has announced a partnership with financial services provider Momentum in support of the Alviro Peterson Foundation. Momentum will sponsor the Alviro Petersen Challenge to be played in October between Port Elizabeth schools, Gelvandale and Otto Du Plessiss High Schools.
The Alviro Peterson Foundation, founded in 2013 was born out of Alviro’s commitment to improve and effect positive change in his local community. After playing UK county cricket with Glanmorgan, Alviro made his way home after being re-selected for the Proteas at the start of 2012. This provided the ideal opportunity for Alviro to use his success and local prominence to establish a foundation in his name.
