RED VS BLUE RUN

Adobe Photoshop PDFTAKE UP THE CHALLENGE!
 
The RED vs BLUE Run is a race between the sexes – men vs women, boys vs girls.
 
But it’s not the fastest time that wins the ultimate prize. Strength is truly in numbers, with the group with the most finishers crowned the winner.
 
The concept originated in Porto, Portugal where a similar race takes place each year, namely “Corrida do Homen e da Mulher”.
 
This is not an event for runners only. Anyone can take part – young and old, cross-fitters to couch-potatoes.
 
Distance: 6 km
Date: Wednesday, 29 March 2017
Time: 18:00
Place: Golden Valley Casino, Worcester
PLEASE NOTE: Female participants must wear red and male participants must wear blue.

135 PROJECT

135 Project – pledge a fundraising project of your choice in support of NID.

The 135 Schools Project involves schools taking on a fundraising project of their choice in support of NID. Projects may vary from a social day, coin laying, hosting a dance or anything easy that could easily slot into the school’s annual programme.

This project is however not limited to school participation. Colleges, universities, service organisations or any type of group can also get involved and donate the funds collected from their project to NID as a special 135-year birthday gift.

For more information, contact pa.deputy@nid.org.za

PLEDGE YOUR BIRTHDAY

Pledge your birthday, nominate NID as beneficiary and request your family and friends to rather give a “gift” in support of NID, in celebration of your special day and in celebration of our 135th year of helping the Deaf and people with hearing loss.

We once received a donation from a new friend of the Deaf on request of one of her friends who celebrated his birthday. He had told his family and friends that he had received enough gifts and blessings over the years, and that the money they would have spent on him for a birthday gift, should rather go to a worthy cause. Special gestures like these are one of the ways that has made it possible for NID to make a difference in the lives of the Deaf and persons with hearing loss for the last 135 years.

Please consider following this example and doing the same. Pledge your birthday, nominate NID as beneficiary and request your family and friends to give a “gift” in support of our good cause and in celebration of our 135th year of helping the Deaf and people with hearing loss.

To pledge your birthday, email pa.deputy@nid.org.za.

PLEDGE A BIRTHDAY BOX

Pledge a Birthday Box containing some resident essentials – for example deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo etc. –which we will give to our Oumas and Oupas at our two old age homes for the Deaf as well as the Deaf adults with multiple disabilities.

Be part of the NID 135-year birthday celebration by participating in the Birthday Box project. You will receive a list of resident essentials – for example deodorant, toothpaste, shampoo etc. – to make up a Birthday Box which we will give to our Oumas and Oupas at the two old age homes for the Deaf (Shalom and Rusoord) as well as the Deaf adults with multiple disabilities. The residents in these departments have physical needs and challenges that can only be attended to by others, making it necessary for them to seek the care offered by NID. For these residents, NID is their family and their home. A Birthday Box for each of them will certainly help to make the year ahead special for all of them.

Pledge your box now!

To pledge your birthday box, email pa.deputy@nid.org.za or download the pledge form.

135 SCHOOLS PROJECT

Is your school a change-maker? Does it uphold values of empowerment, community, compassion, generosity and social upliftment? Then this opportunity is for you.

NID is partnering with both public and private schools across South Africa in celebrating its 135th year of helping the Deaf in 2016!

Through the 135 Schools project, NID aims to create a culture of giving amongst South Africa’s youth whilst raising awareness on hearing loss and Deafness. We believe that the mark of a healthy society is the support of people in need. Be a part of creating a better, more caring world.

You can get involved by: donating the proceeds of a calendar event; hosting a dance, fun run, or other event to benefit NID; run a competition to raise awareness on Deafness and the work of NID; or take a tour of NID.

To be part of the 135 Schools movement, contact Hannerie Swart on 023-342-5555 or pa.deputy@nid.org.za.
