The IRONMAN Foundation is an official charity partner to the Absa Cape Epic cycle race and DeafNET was honoured to be selected by the Ironman Foundation to raise public awareness for the Deaf through a street awareness Basic Sign Language Campaign along the route.

DeafNET strives to sensitise the public and private sectors to the unique needs of Deaf individuals, and to provide platforms that will bridge the gap between hearing and Deaf individuals. Our collaboration with the Ironman Foundation during the ABSA Cape Epic provided a significant public opportunity to reach a large number of race supporters with interactive on-the-spot South African Sign Language training.
