FOREST View Primary School selected its Grade 6 learner, Faye Verster, as its SPAR Star of the Month.
Faye is a naturally friendly, animated and an inspirational learner.
She has a passion for mountain biking and has pursued this as her sport of choice for the past two years.
In 2018 she took on the sport and was eager to participate in the Spur School Series and a race in Eston with a total of five races. Faye has competed again this year in the event and finished seventh overall in her age group.
She has been sponsored by a couple, Chantelle and Bruce Wilson, who she rides with. She was beyond delighted when she was given a bike by Kevin Sansom of Inchanga Park Country Village.
The talented rider has set her sights and heart on the Amashova this year in October.
“I love riding because it’s a good way to keep fit while enjoying nature and having fun. When I ride, I feel free,” she said.
Faye is passionate about animals and will be riding the Amashova this year in support of the the Sanctuary Project’s sterilisation projects.
With the help of her mom, Linda, she set up a donation fund site on BackaBuddy. To help her reach her target, visit www.backabuddy.co.za/champion/project/faye-s4s.
