The Story so far...

Björn’s life journey from the “Ghetto to Success” will inspire people of all ages as he talks about what made him rise above his difficult childhood circumstances to become Boland Cross Country champion and ultimately represent South Africa at the World Duathlon Championships in Canada.

Prior to the Barcelona Marathon, Björn will be inviting corporates, groups and individuals to accept the “I Coach Björn” fundraising challenge. He will also visit schools, communities and corporates to challenge them to participate in the “I Coach Björn” fundraising challenge.

We have found that many kids are at risk between after-school and the time their parents are home, therefore the dream is to provide after-school care that will inspire hope. This environment will provide safety, but also an opportunity to further educate, mentor and add value to these future leaders.
