I2B Lookback

I2B and CSA updates

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



Inspired2Become has a new WEBSITE!

Inspired2Become is very excited to announce that we launched our brand new website! Jolande Jardim from the Cyrus Trust worked very hard in making our website look amazing and we are so grateful for all the hard work that she has put into it. Crab a cup of coffee, some biscuits, find a comfortable seat and go and have a look (www.inspired2become.org)!




Alternative action sports by Chris

Inspired2Become on Kyknet
Bibi Slippers from the Kyknet TV series Flits came to do an interview with me regarding Inspired2Become's action sports clubs.



Flits featured this short insert of Inspired2Become on South Africa's Youth Day 2016.



Skate deck for Cloetesville skater
Congratulations Cheslin on getting a new deck!

                             

Bowl progress
We anticipated to have finished the bowl already but due to a lack of time and a busy schedule, we are still in the process of fixing it. This is what it looks like so far:  



It's an I2B Day
A special thank you goes out to Jaden from I2B Somerset West for designing a very cool flyer for our "It's an I2B Day" at the I2B Skatepark in Somerset West. Jaden is a gr. 9 learner and a regular local skater at the park. He is helping with this event as part of a school project.

                 

New members
The I2B skimboarding club in Strand recently had some new members joining the club. These two girls bravely faced the cold and eagerly tried to skimboard for the very first time.



Sandiso and Apelele created an art piece on a skimboard at the club. It is Africa with sun rays behind it.

                               



Athletics for people with disabilities by Fanie

U/20 Springboks
I had the opportunity to share my story with the young Boks at SAS to motivate them before they go to the World Cup!



Grand Prix in Switzerland
Our start for the Grand Prix Series was held in Switzerland. We had some great races with Dyan Buis, Arnu Fourie and Charl du Toit running their personal best. 



Congratulations to Charl du Toit who ran an African record in the 400m and a World Record in the 100m on the same day.



Helderberg Residence Fitness Group
I shared my journey with the Helderberg Residence Fitness Group and afterwards we had a Q and A session.

 

New athlete
Paul is a double amputee who started training with us. Here he is going for classification:

                 

Educational Therapy by Jami

Making my room "vandalize-proof"
After we renovated the room I use for therapy at Raithby primary, someone broke in over a weekend and vandalized the room. Chris and I then went to put up a door with a lock to keep it from happening again.
 
        



Therapy at Raithby
I continued giving therapy to the lovely children at Raithby. I am so inspired by the amount of hard work and passion the teachers show toward their learners.  

What I particularly like about this small farm school, is the way they teach their children to look after animals. This is a picture of Bonzo. Bonzo follows his little owner to school every day and has his spot reserved for him in class! At the end of a very busy school day, Bonzo says goodbye to all the children and teachers and faithfully accompanies his little owner back home. 



Meeting at Sentinel Primary, Hout Bay
I had a meeting with the parents of one of the referred learners in Sentinel Primary. We discussed the therapy home program I started developing for this learner. Her teacher, Elke Wicht from the Hangbrg Educational Trust, and parents will do the program exercises with her at school and at home.  

 

Thank you for your support and interest!
