This year, Singapore Airlines (SIA) celebrates its 70th anniversary.
From their founding in 1972, SIA has come a long way from a regional airline to one of the most respected travel brands in the world. SIA flies one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the world, to destinations spanning a network of more than five continents.
Proceeds will go to the Community Chest of Singapore
So as part of the charity activities held in conjunction with their 70th anniversary celebrations, SIA is putting together the SIA Charity Run and all proceeds raised from the run will go to the Community Chest of Singapore.
The 2017 edition will be taking place on 8th October at The Float @ Marina Bay.
And coming together with SIA to organise the 2017 race is HiVelocity Events, one of Singapore’s premiere sports marketing and event management firms in Singapore, having organised more than 70 events over the past eight years.
