HARDLOOP VIR DOWES

NID se “Hardloop vir Dowes” projekte het vanjaar weer met ‘n hoogtepunt afgeskop met die tweede Rooi vs Blou wedloop wat op 29 Maart plaasgevind het. 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 vanjaar die dames gewys waar Dawid die wortels gegrawe het en is as wenners gekroon. Die opbrengs van die wedloop word aangewend vir die opleiding van Dowe leraars by NID.

Op 15 April het 50 atlete ook weer vanjaar deelgeneem aan die Old Mutual Two Oceans Half Marathon ten bate van NID. Die merkwaardige fondsinsameling-pogings van hierdie atlete het vanjaar R 164 000 bygedra tot die dienste aan Dowes by NID.

Nog ‘n knoop in die oor om te maak is die NID Night Trail Run wat weer vanjaar plaasvind op 24 en 25 November 2017.

RUN FOR THE DEAF

This year, NID’s “Run for the Deaf” projects have kicked off with a bang starting with the second Red vs Blue run that took place on 29 March. This 6km 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!  This year, the gents kicked sand in the face of the ladies and were crowned as champs. The proceeds of the run will go towards Deaf Ministry Training at NID.

On 15 April 50 athletes also took part in the Old Mutual Two Oceans Half Marathon to the benefit of NID. The remarkable efforts in fundraising from these athletes contributed R 164 000 towards services to the Deaf at NID.

An upcoming event date to save is 24 & 25 November 2017, when the NID Night Trail Run takes place again.
