The first edition had taken place in 2014 and the run has seen enthusiastic attendance grow each year.
Make-A-Wish Singapore aims to fulfil wishes and dreams of children with life threatening medical conditions
Make-A-Wish Singapore will be the beneficiary of this year’s edition of the annual charity run and funds raised will be used to assist Make-A-Wish Singapore in fulfilling the wishes and dreams of children with life threatening medical conditions.
Added Judy Lim, Chief Executive Officer of Make-A-Wish Singapore, “We are heartened to be slated as the beneficiary for this year’s PCCW Global Charity Run, which will go a long way in helping us grant wishes for the children.”
She continued “We hope PCCW Global’s support will inspire commitment from other corporates to our cause of bringing hope, strength and joy to every medically eligible child when they need it the most.”
Charity runners, Yellow Fellows, and media personalities are taking part
The Yellow Fellows, a group of regular charity runners dressed in bright, fluorescent yellow, will be taking part again. As well, local media personality Randall Tan, sports presenter Paul Sng and other fitness celebrities will be taking part in the 2017 edition of the event. Ambassadors of Make-A-Wish Singapore will also be present, to raise awareness as well as to promote and raise funds for children in need.
Said Marc Halbfinger, Chief Executive Officer of PCCW Global, “We are delighted to hold the PCCW Global Charity Run 2017 in Singapore again. This fourth edition is a continuation of our vision to give back to the society and we hope that through Make-A-Wish Singapore, we will bring a smile to to the faces of these children.”
