What we've been doing to inspire the youth....

I2B & CS Skim Comp

During the school holidays we held a skimboarding competition for our club members. Our faithful local Cape Town skimboarders and Durban skim-friend, Brandon, also joined in as well as our dear friend, Sean Jahnig, all the way from Dubai!



I2B & CS Paarl Jam

Many of our I2B and CS clubs met up with the Paarl locals at the CS Paarl Skatepark for a fun skating and blading competition. We reorganized the skatepark layout, had a braai and the day ended with a sunset prize-giving.




Cape Winelands Grant

We are extremely grateful to have received a grant from the Cape Winelands Municipality. During the handover of the grant, we had the opportunity to connect with other NPOs and it was great to see and hear about the fantastic work they are doing in the Cape Winelands District.



I2B Bright Lights skate club going to church

One of our Bright Lights skaters, Clarence, recently shared his story with their local church congregation as part of their youth outreach service to celebrate Father's Day. We are so proud of the young man Clarence is growing up the be. We know that he will have a positive influence on the lives of many other young people and that he will rise to be a leader and mentor for his community.




New Equipment

We had a fix-up day for the I2B Kleinvlei club to put them some new pairs of rollerblades together.

All Ability Transkei Outreach

During the July school holidays, some of our I2B athletes and supporters took on the long road to the Eastern Cape to meet up with fellow sport ministry partners. I believe the Lord laid it on my heart to go and visit them.

Due to unforeseen circumstances we started our tour a day and a half behind schedule and only arrived at Willowvale the evening of the 5th of July. There we met the family of Mr. Mlamli and the whole neighbourhood also came to greet us!



We visited Butterworth where we invited the community of people with disabilities for a sports day. Word got out that we were visiting them and we received the opportunity to share our stories and reasons for visiting on air. 



When we headed back to Willowvale to start our sport program, the field was already packed with children and we could create awareness for disabled sport. We used the evenings to build relationship with the family and friends and we had a big "jol" the evening with some dancing and music! At Butterworth we focused on adapted sports for volley ball, cricket, athletics and soccer. 



We also stayed at Jongamanzi Cottages (500m from the Hole in the Wall!). We had time to rest and spend time together as an athletics family in the most beautiful creation.



I believe we have started a friendship with Mr. Zagallo and Mr. Mlamli that will take us back to Willowvale in the future. We would like to thank everyone who supported this mission - especially Maties and US Sport Science for your equipment and Shofar for the Quantum minibus. 

 

All our love,

The Inspired 2 Become Team

Palmiet skimboarding camp
We took our Gordon's Bay and Strand skimboarding clubs on a weekend camp at Palmiet Caravan Park a while ago.





Even though the skim waves were quite big, it did not stop our brave skimmers from charging it!



We also had some fun in the nearby Palmiet river where we put up a skim rail.



I2B Gordon's Bay Skate
We recently started a skating club at Temperance Town, Gordon's Bay. We put up a rail for the skaters to start practicing their grinds and are hoping to get permission from the local counsel to put up a skatepark for the kids in future.



Shred sessions
Once a month we take seven of our top rollerbladers for a rollerblade session at the Shred Skatepark. A definite highlight for all of us!



Bonteheuwel club
The I2B Bonteheuwel club is doing really well. Thanks to our club coach, Reagan Davids, for doing such a great job with the kids!

2018 SA Champs for Physically Disabled
Inspired 2 Become partnered with SCAS and Made for More at the 2018 SA Champs for the Physically Disabled in Bloemfontein. 



We had a chill room where we could build relationship with the athletes. We served refreshments, shared stories and just had loads of fun with the many different games we played!



I also coached some of the Western Cape sprinters who competed at the Champs!



Sinaletho's guide
