NID Run for the Deaf – Marathon Tour

From 19 September to 03 October 2018, 26 dedicated runners with compassionate hearts from Cape Town took part in a marathon tour through the Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia and Poland.

This year’s tour was the eighth one since 2012 and is an annual NID fundraising initiative. The group managed to raise R 100 000 to the benefit of Deaf adults with multiple disabilities as well as elderly Deaf at NID, as well as R 40 000 for the Gawie de la Bat Nursery School.

In April 2019 14 athletes will take part in the 9th NID Marathon Tour to Europe. They will compete in various races whilst raising awareness and funds to the benefit of Deaf adults with multiple disabilities as well as elderly Deaf at NID.

CYCLE TELETHON 2018

On Friday 31 August and Saturday 01 September NID held our annual Cycle Telethon fundraising project in the Mountain Mill Shopping Centre, Worcester.

The project involves 4 teams of 9 Deaf cyclists each cycling for 24 hours from Friday 14:00 to Saturday 14:00 on exercise bicycles in the shopping centre. The teams compete against each other to cycle the furthest distance in the 24 hours. During the cycling we have a phoning program where tele-marketers (mostly staff with a few volunteers) phone donors, partners and friends and ask them to pledge a contribution towards the project. Previous donors are challenged on their previous gifts or to better the pledge and new donors (who are challenged by existing donors/pledgers) are asked to become involved through a contribution.

The aim of the project is to raise funds for multiple-disabled Deaf adults at NID and secondly to create awareness of NID and what we do for the Deaf and persons with hearing loss through our various departments.

This year the team from De la Bat School for the Deaf was crowned the winners. The total amount of R 200 000 has been pledged and received thus far.

You can still help make a difference: SMS / WhatsApp your donation pledge to 082 947 8846 or email to pa.deputy@nid.org.za for more information.
