The “Light Up Your Life Run” is a unique evening run featuring various lighting themes and fun-filled activities for people of all ages.
Will raise funds for charity
Organised by the Save Our Street Dogs (SOSD) and Assisi Hospice, this unique charity run will take place on 3rd October 2015, at East Coast Park – and aims to raise funds for both organisations.
Categories include the individual 5 km and 10 km run, and well as the 2 km dog walk (dogs must be accompanied by their owners).
The registration fees for each of the categories are as follows. (See Table).
Each participant will get a goodie bag worth up to SGD250. It will include a limited edition event T-shirt, a bottle of vitamins, pet food from Wellness, energy bar and vouchers from sponsors such as Delifrance and Renault.
Mini Carnival awaits runners at the finishing line
Participants and members of the public can also enjoy activities on the sidelines of the charity run, including a mini-carnival that will feature various stalls and family activities at the event site. Details on the mini-carnival will be available closer to the event date.
Run epitomises SOSD’s vision of promoting positive interaction between humans and animals
Explained Dr Siew Tuck Wah, President of SOSD, “The Light Up Your Life Charity Run epitomises SOSD’s vision of promoting positive interaction between humans and animals. We have expanded our involvement in the community through our Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) programme and are pleased to partner with Assisi Hospice to launch this innovative event to bring kindness and hope to the less fortunate – for both animals and humans alike.”
Invites the community to run to support palliative care
Added A/Prof Premanrani Kannusamy, CEO, Assisi Hospice, “Our patients with life- limiting illnesses receive care not only from our staff – they are also cheered by others, including the team from SOSD’s AAA programme. This charity run invites the community to understand and support palliative care. Life is like a run – so let’s help them finish the race well”.
Funds raised will go towards the operating expenses for both charities
The funds raised from this event will go towards the operating expenses for both charities and supporting SOSD in implementing more community-focused initiatives such as the AAA programme that will benefit both people and animals and increase social awareness.
