Inspired2Become - spot the overlooked, develop the neglected

What we do every month to get the youth inspired! 

Alternative action sports
-The PTA/Joburg/Free State Trip-
So we were four guys to get on a plane and go to Gauteng and the Free State to host some competitions where it was much needed. Inspired2Become joined up with the Son Skate head office team from Jeffreys Bay. 

-The Free State competition- At Kroonstad Cell Church.

-The PTA competition- In the Moot area and joined up with Moot vir Christus.

-The My Culture Resurrection Jam competition- At Hartebeespoortdam, we served all out. We worked for two days to paint the park and set up everything for the competitions. Thanks Tristan, Bheki, Quinton and Keerin for being such faithful, awesome guys.

-The Son Skate Stellenbosch Skate Park- Thanks Red Bull for fixing up our floor for the Red Bull ManiMania happening the 4th of June.

-Skates for the kids- Thanks Powerslide form Germany for sponsoring rollerblades for the kids in the Inspired2Become programmes. This is a miracle and rollerblading in South Africa can only get bigger from here and it gives the kids so much hope.

-The Skim club- Thanks Handsdown skimboards for sponsoring the coach of the I2B skimboard club with a new board. This makes it possible for the strand skimboard club to start practicing with my old board.

Athletics for youth with disabilities 
-Denswell Maans, one of the I2B athletes, was chosen for the IPSA games that will be held in September. 

-Four South African athletes were chosen to participate in the BT Paralympic World Cup in London during May 2011.
