Inspired2Become - youth reaching their full potential

What we do every month to get the youth inspired!

Alternative action sports
-I2B sponsored the mini ramp to Son Surf Strand- The Rietenbos Primary School project didn't work out so we decided to move the ramps again. Over the school holiday some metal sheets were ripped off the ramps and stolen. The Cloetesville skate club had to move back to the broken down tennis courts. We are looking to fix it up and turn it into a skate park for the youth in the future. The Son Surf guys are very happy about their mini ramp. Was a tough job to move it.

We also helped them to fix it up.

The end product!

-Protective gear sponsored to some kids.

-I2B Daytrip to Brakenfell, Cape Town and Campsbay.

-Fanie, Chris and Arnu Fourie talked at Porterville High School during their Jesus Week. Chris also did a demo on the rail on his rollerblades.
