Going the Distance for a Good Cause
Despite the morning heat, over 3,000 participants took to the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park’s Ficus Green lawn for the Singapore Children’s Society annual walkathon, Walk for Our Children 2018, on 9 September.
Guest-of-Honour Minister for Finance, Mr Heng Swee Keat, flagged off and participated in the 3-km walk.
The theme this year was ‘Safari’, in recognition of the varying strengths of different animals. Similarly, our beneficiaries all have different strengths that we can help them unleash.
It was a full day of activities, with fun and games at a carnival following the walk. This included an inflatable maze and human foosball.
Close to $400,000 was raised from the event.
