Raise awareness and funds for NID through your participation in a running event of your choice. Events such as the NID Trail Run, Two Oceans Half Marathon and NID Marathon Tour have created the opportunity for sport enthusiasts with a passion for seeing the lives of others improved, to make a difference in the lives of persons with hearing loss at NID.
This year, NID’s “Run for the Deaf” projects kicked off with the fourth Red vs Blue run which took place on 14 March 2019. This 5km 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! The ladies were crowned as the champs this year!
On 20 April 25 athletes took part in the Old Mutual Two Oceans Half Marathon in support of the NID Run for the Deaf Campaign and raised R 49 447 to the benefit of the Deaf and persons with hearing loss at NID.
From 02 – 17 April 2019 a group of 17 athletes participated in the 9th NID Marathon Tour to Europe. They ran various races to raise awareness and financial support for elderly- and multiple-disabled Deaf adults at NID and raised a total amount of R 52 500.
SAVE THE DATE: The NID Dusk & Dawn Trail Run will take place again on 25 and 26 October 2019.
