THE JOURNEY SO FAR
‘…move on, fight harder and the only thing that will happen is that it will get better…’
Brandon Beack, born 1995, is an inspiration to anyone in adversity. A promising young South African gymnast who at the age of 17 suffered a tragic accident whilst in training for Olympic qualifying competitions. Despite life-changing injuries, Brandon ignored doctors and fought the toughest of personal battles so that his injuries did not get the better of him. As one door closed, Brandon’s determination was the key to opening other doors, including breaking the South African 100m sprint record.
With the enduring emotional and financial support of his parents, Brandon was lucky enough to be able to receive specialist treatment unavailable in South Africa. This specialist treatment was instrumental in his rehabilitation. Realising that there are so many South Africans in similar life-changing circumstances and without the good fortune to be able to receive the right treatment, Brandon and his family had the vision and commitment to start the ‘Walking with Brandon’ Foundation.
“Brandon and Mark have absolutely turned a tragedy into a calling”
