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.
