Made for More has 11 incredible people heading to California for the Para Surfing Championships this December, and this is how we can support them.

 

Durban, South Africa (07 September 2021) –  ‘Made for More’ is a Non-Profit Company and a Public Benefit Organisation that aims to include, empower and equip people with disabilities through sport and mental health programmes.

‘Made for More’ uses sport as a vehicle to drive hope, build relationships, and instil morals and values while equipping and giving athletes the opportunity to pursue their sporting careers provincially and on a national level.

The organisation promotes surfing for people with disabilities, and it is one of their most successful campaigns. So much so that several of their programme participants have been selected for the South African para surfing team.
