BONUS - RUSTENBURG - Get ready to kick off your work heels, boring black school shoes or even your comfy flip flops and step into everyone's favourite "shoes": slippers! Slipper Day, Reach For A Dream's biggest fundraiser, returns on 31 May 2024. 
As is the custom, the day promises to be filled with warmth, generosity, and fun - all in support of children with life-threatening illnesses.
Since its inauguration in 2011, Slipper Day has become a nationwide movement where South Africans band together to make dreams come true for children with critical diseases like cancer, renal failure, and heart conditions. 

This year’s theme, "Step into My Slippers," focuses on both empathy and fun, as this simple act demonstrates solidarity and support for these children, who often spend their days in slippers due to their health conditions. "Our children face unimaginable struggles each day in the hospital. Their courage and resilience is awe-inspiring," says Julia Sotirianakos, CEO of Reach For A Dream. "By trading your shoes for slippers, you're stepping into these youngsters' world, showing them that they are not alone in this fight."
All funds raised from Slipper Day go to the Reach For A Dream Foundation, a non-profit organisation that makes dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses. Since its inception in 1988, the Foundation has turned more than 27 670 dreams into reality. 
These dreams—ranging from meeting personal heroes to experiencing new things for the first time, provide the children with a temporary escape from their illness and a much-needed distraction from often painful medical treatments. Most importantly, fulfilled dreams inspire hope, giving these children a reason to believe that tomorrow is worth fighting for.
