MyPR: Take a stand for children with disabilities – Enter the Nappy Run™ fun run:
The annual Nappy Run 5km fun run invites you to come run, walk, wheel or stroll at the Johannesburg Zoo on National Children’s Day, 2 November 2019. The campaign is focused on raising awareness of the conditions children with disabilities live under, the challenges they face, as well as their rights which are violated on multiple levels. The campaign also serves to raise funds to buy nappies for children with disabilities – an essential health item that this already-vulnerable and marginalised group often sadly goes without.
We invite you to please join us in reaching our 2019 goal to raise money for at least 55 000 nappies to supply to children with disabilities, around the country. The race starts at 07:30 (registration opens from 06:30), and tickets can be purchased from the Nappy Run website (R60 for children and R100 for adults).
The event is organised by the National Council of & for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD) and forms part of the NCPD’s observation of South Africa’s Disability Rights Awareness Month (DRAM) in November. The Nappy Run campaign runs until 3 December to coincide with International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD).

Did you know this about Johannesburg? In January 1890 the Health Committee conducted its first census of the town. They found that Johannesburg had 26 303 inhabitants. There were 13 820 buildings, of which 772 were shops and stores and 261 hotels and bars. The following suburbs were recorded: Booysens, Fordsburg, Langlaagte, Braamfontein, Auckland Park, Marshall’s Town, Ferreira’s Town, Prospect and Jeppe’s Town. There was also a Coolie Location and a Veldtschoendorp, the latter being a shanty town occupied by Dutch citizens of the ZAR.
