Simply by participating in the race, 25% of your team’s race fee will be donated to invest in a project, delivered by our local partner, that uses the power of sport and physical activity to address a social challenge in your city. The best part is, you get to help choose where those funds go by choosing a cause you care about, and running for it.
Run for this cause and the grant will go toward funding a high-energy, fun and engaging community-run sport programme that imbibe values, skills and confidence that enable low-income and at-risk children and teenagers to identify and embrace positive opportunities in their lives.
Run for this cause and the grant will go toward helping young women learn to be leaders in their own right using the positive values of sport.
Run for this cause and the grant will go toward funding efforts to help train and build a core group of locale-based sport mentors and befrienders who will positively impact the vulnerable and under-served in Singapore through pro social programmes.
