I2B updates

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

Alternative action sports by Chris
-The Christian Skaters/Surfers Conference- We did an I2B tour to JBay for the conference.

More info on the Christian Surfers and Skaters National Conference

We also made a one night stop over at The Yard skatepark in Knysna.

Dawnie skim session in Buffel's Bay.

-The I2B Skim-Chair Race- The aim was to have this event for young people in wheel-chairs but it was a challenge to get them to the beach. This was however just a test run and we hope to do a big skim-chair event for people with disabilities next summer.

We ended up just having the race between the I2B club members. The fastest team over the stretch of 100m won. 



The two fastest teams below. Each guy won an I2B T-shirt.

Thanks to my friend Josh who built a skim-rail for some extra excitement on the day.

-The I2B Kogel Bay Skim Camp- We went to camp directly after the Skim-Chair Race.

Three kids got baptized at camp in the ocean, between the mountains, how awesome is that?!


-Thanks to Godfrey and Scott- from Shofar Somerset WestGodfrey (on the left) is the new supervisor at the I2B Somerset West Skatepark and Scott is a faithful volunteer. We are busy putting the bowl in. We are hoping to put a roof over the bowl at the end, in order to keep the rain out. Please let us know if you want to be involved with this project.


Athletics for people with disabilities by Fanie

-Outreach at National Championships- We had an amazing time at Nationals this year, sharing testimonies and having fellowship with athletes. It was great to see athletes respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It was the first of hopefully many more, thanks to the SSC (Stellenbosch Sport Coalition), Niel Louw, SCAS and everyone else involved.

We are proud of our athletes

-Sharing my life story- I had the opportunity to share my story with Tannie Hanlie and her friends, which is a group of ladies that get together on a monthly basis, we had a delicious meal together at Tannie Hanlie's house after I shared my story with them.

-Grand Prix Series- We kicked off the series of competitions in Brazil, the following races are taking place in Europe. It is the first year that they are hosting this series.

-Sports Ministry Training- Some of the I2B members joined the training for the outreaches we will have during the soccer world cup.

-Presidential Awards- I was privileged to receive an award, the order of Ikhamanga for excellent achievement in Paralympic sports. I had the honor of going with my dad.  

 

Thank you for your interest and support!
