Sasol, in conjunction with WBSA, have set out to inspire the country by telling the stories of those involved in the sport of Wheelchair Basketball, through the #Limitless initiative. #Limitless will shine a spotlight on the drive, skill and determination of the powerful and passionate individuals selflessly giving of themselves to benefit the sport. These individuals will demonstrate how involvement in sport can teach confidence, dedication, determination, and teamwork to inspire all South Africans.
Wheelchair Basketball South Africa CEO, Charles Saunders, commented, “Our team is full of some of the most inspirational people I know. We now have the opportunity to inspire the South African public through their stories and attract more players to the sport. I commend our partners Sasol on this wonderful initiative.”
Sasol Group Brand Marketing Manager Nozipho Mbatha added, “Throughout our partnership with WBSA, we have been amazed and inspired by the individuals within the set-up. Through shining a light on these individuals, we hope that this initiative can both build the support base for the Sasol AmaWheelaBoys and showcase the #Limitless potential of our national team.”
In addition to team and player stories, South Africans will be given a taste of the team’s #Limitless abilities through the ongoing Green vs Gold series – a part of WVSA’s programme to prepare the team for the 2019 IWBF Africa Paralympic Qualifiers.
Sasol AmaWheelaBoys captain Cecil Dumond concluded, “The Green v Gold series is not only great preparation for our upcoming endeavours but the games offer opportunities for the South African public to come and experience wheelchair basketball. We urge as many people as possible to attend and support the team, we look forward to seeing you there.”
#Limitless is designed to use Wheelchair Basketball and those involved in the sport as a positive catalyst in changing perceptions and behaviours for positive outcomes. Long-serving Sasol AmaWheelaboys captain Cecil Dumond is the first to tell his inspirational story.
