We received several requests from the Deaf community for something that they can follow and that can be enjoyed by EVERYONE!

We thought that this was a great idea!

NID Sign Superstars is now replaced with NID DIY.

Watch Deaf people make things, cook food and surprise you with many more interesting things!

This year, NID’s “Run for the Deaf” projects will kick off with the third Red vs Blue run which will take place on 27 March 2018. This 6km fun run that was held for the first time in 2016, is already highly popular and is unlike any other: The winners are not those who finish first, but are determined by whether male (Blue) or female (Red) participants finish in the majority!  Last year, the gents kicked sand in the face of the ladies and were crowned as champs.Who will be the winners this year?

On 31 March 30 athletes will take part in the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon to the benefit of NID.

The NID Night Trail Run will take place again in November 2018.

NID se “Hardloop vir Dowes” projekte skop vanjaar weer met ‘n hoogtepunt af met die derde Rooi vs Blou wedloop wat op 27 Maart plaasvind. Dié 6km wedloop wat in 2016 die eerste keer aangebied is is reeds baie gewild en is anders as enige ander een: Die wenner(s) is nie wie eerste is nie, maar wie van mans of vroue die meeste is wat die wedloop voltooi! Die mans het verlede jaar die dames gewys waar Dawid die wortels gegrawe het en is as wenners gekroon. Wie sal vanjaar die wenners wees?

Op 31 Maart sal 30 atlete ook weer deelneem aan die Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon ten bate van NID.

Nog ‘n knoop in die oor om te maak is die NID Night Trail Run wat weer vanjaar plaasvind in November.

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.

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 137th 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 137 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 137th year of helping the Deaf and people with hearing loss.
