On Friday 31 August and Saturday 01 September NID will be running 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.

Make a difference and SMS / WhatsApp your donation pledge to 082 947 8846 or email to pa.deputy@nid.org.za for more information.
