Come run, walk, wheel, or stroll at the Nappy Run™ 5km fun run at the Johannesburg Zoo on International Children’s Day, 3 November 2018. The annual campaign is focused on raising awareness of the conditions children with disabilities live under, the challenges they face, as well as their rights that 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.

Join us in reaching our 2018 goal to raise money for at least 50 000 nappies to supply to children with disabilities, around the country. The race starts at 07:30 (registration opens at 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 and for Persons with Disabilities. For more information about the Nappy Run™ fun run, or to make a donation, visit, or find them on Facebook – | Instagram – |Twitter – @NappyRun. Alternatively, email:

About the Nappy RunTM
The Nappy RunTM campaign was created in 2011 to make a strong and positive impact on the lives of thousands of children with disabilities, providing awareness to their basic needs as well as overall advancement of the dignity, care, development and social inclusion of these children.

The Nappy RunTM is a national awareness and nappy donation-drive campaign which culminates in an official 5km fun run, walk or wheel event at Joburg Zoo on Saturday 3 November 2018, coinciding with International Children’s Day.

The two-pronged purpose of the Nappy RunTM campaign is primarily aimed at educating the public on the violation of the rights of our country’s most marginalized and vulnerable group of people – our children with disabilities. Furthermore, Nappy RunTM appeals to the public for online donations which go towards the purchase of nappies – a vital incontinence-management product for children with disabilities.

Nappy RunTM is a project of the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD), a national NGO for the promotion and protection of the rights of persons with disabilities. For more information, visit, or on Facebook and Instagram, and on Twitter, @NappyRun.
