Nappy Run is an annual campaign that is organised by the National Council of and for Persons with Disabilities (NCPD). It runs from 3 October to 3 December and concludes on International Day for Persons with Disabilities (IDPD). The campaign falls within SA’s Disability Rights Awareness Month (DRAM) which takes place every November.
Over two months, the Nappy Run campaign raises awareness about the issues facing children with disabilities. Nappy Run undertakes advocacy and lobbying, while also raising funds to buy nappies for children with disabilities. The highlight of the campaign is a fun run that we host at the Johannesburg Zoo in November each year.
