Lace up your takkies for a 7km night run to honour nurses


The 4th annual Exceptional Nurse Campaign Night Run Series is currently taking place throughout South Africa. We’re lacing up our takkies and taking part and encourage you to join in this family-friendly event in support and honour of nurses.

At the same time, you will be helping raise awareness for the current healthcare crisis.  50% of nurses in our country are nearing retirement age and with a loss of 9,000 nurses annually due to retirement and death, there is a capacity to train only 3,500 nurses each year.  The Night Run events create a healthy public platform to urge government to address the current healthcare crisis and train more nurses.

The 7km night route is symbolic of the 7-7 shifts worked by nurses.

Entries cost R100 per person and R50 for children under the age of 12, with all proceeds being donated to the Exceptional Nurse Campaign Bursary Fund.
