Where Our Story Began
Goldilocks and The Bear Foundation (#gb4adhd) was proudly founded by psychiatrist, Professor Renata Schoeman (“Goldilocks”) and Nic de Beer (“The Bear)”. In 2017, Nic and Renate competed in the 3-day African X trail run. They made the decision to raise funds while competing, with the intention to donate the proceeds to a non-profit organisation supporting children with ADHD. However, they were unable to find an organisation which offered these services, and so the idea of the Goldilocks and The Bear Foundation was born. The Foundation was officially registered as a non-profit organisation/public beneficiary organisation in 2017, introducing South African’s first free ADHD screening and early intervention services.
