Inspired2Become - youth reaching their full potential
What we do every month to get the youth inspired!
Alternative action sports
-Encounter Youth Conference- Hillsong Church Cape Town asked I2B to host a skateboard, rollerblade and BMX comp.
-Agapè day-trip- Anne from Agapè, school for learners with cerebral palsy, took some of the boys from her school on a day-trip. Matt from her church helped out. I2B hosted the skating for the day!
-The Strand box got painted and we started a new skate club: I2B Strand.
-The Strand Skimboarding club really appreciates the wetsuits from Christian Surfers Strand.
-Cloetesville outreach- Pastor Petrus (from Shofar Cloetesville and I2B board member) together with Oom Louis from Hopefield came to visit some of our clubs. Oom Louis entertained them with his music gift and shared his life testimony. He use to be a Rastafarian and was diagnosed with leukemia. God healed him and he committed his life to the Lord. He now travels and share his story with many people.
-Carl receives new straps for his skates
-Durban visit- Bros is a sponsored rider for Handsdown skimboards. He came from Durban to visit I2B and compete in the skimboard comp, The Skimfreeze. He took some great photos at our clubs. Below is the Cloetesville club.
We also went for some flatland skimboarding with the I2B Strand club. The water didn't smell nice but it was still an awesome time!
Bros unfortunately got injured in the skimfreeze comp. To my surprise I received 2nd place. I won a Butlers pizza voucher, Lundon glasses, an Exile T-shirt and a dvd.
