Inspired2Become (I2B) is a registered non-profit organisation that does youth development through sport. One leg of our programs, is coaching athletics to youth with disabilities.
I2B is extremely proud to announce that two of our athletes, Paul Daniels and Chane Hendricks, were selected to present South Africa at the Junior World Para Athletics Championships. It will take place in Nottwil, Switzerland from 28 July until 5 August 2019. I2B coach, Fanie van der Merwe, was also selected to join the event as a team coach.
Unfortunately the National Federation is unable to send the team due to a lack of funding and the responsibility is on the individual to raise the funds needed for World Champs.
Inspired2Become wants to see athletes reach their full potential and we recognize what a game changer a Junior World Champs can be for an athlete’s career. We understand how crucial this experience can be for an athlete to develop emotionally, foster a dream and to keep the vision.
Chane Hendricks will be competing in the T13 division (athlete with visual impairment) and Paul Daniels will be competing in the T62 division (double amputee). I2B coach, Fanie van der Merwe, was also selected to join the athletes at the event.
It will cost each individual R35,000.00 to be able to go to the championships (a total of R105,000.00). We have already raised R40,000.00
The athletes and coach have given it their all in preparing for the event and are extremely excited to go! We cannot be more proud of them!
