ABOUT THIS EVENT

Since our inception, Run For Light has been collaborating with Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS) in helping the visually impaired enhance their quality of life through creating public awareness in the community as well as fund-raising campaigns leading up to the event. Once again, Run For Light 2021 is pledging support to GDS for the 6th consecutive time.

Regrettably, the onslaught of COVID-19 has greatly disrupted the order of the day the world over. The “LIGHT” that has always been illuminating the visually impaired ones with shining ray of hope has taken a broader dimension in the 2021 edition, thus the theme – “Light Up The World” (⠠⠇⠊⠣⠞⠀⠠⠥⠏⠀⠠⠮⠀⠠⠸⠺⠖ in braille). It is our biggest wish to illuminate the world with the beckoning “LIGHT” of Run For Light and for lives to return to normalcy. Without doubt, we will prevail!

It can’t be helped that the pandemic is still looming large but our annual run event has to proceed albeit on a different concept with safety measures in place. The 6th edition of Run For Light 2021 will go the ‘hybrid way’ on 20 March, Saturday @ 1700 hrs which will see decentralised on-site 1KM blindfold walk as well as virtual run.

How will the 1KM Blindfold Walk be conducted?
Participants who sign up for ‘1KM Blindfold Walk’ category will make their way to the designated event venues to join the guide dog & the team from Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS) for the symbolic walk on event day. 1KM Blindfold Walk is a non-timed category.

To keep our blindfold walk participants safe, the group size will be kept to 100 at each venue. A ‘LIVE’ streaming of the event will take place for everyone to feel the celebratory mood up close and personal.

Punggol Shore CSC (formerly known as Punggol North CSC), Sengkang Central CSC and Nee Soon CSC are Run For Light 2021 community partners which will see the symbolic 1KM blindfold walk taking place at the three venues:

Punggol Town Square (helmed by Punggol Shore CSC)
Sengkang Central CC (helmed by Sengkang Central CSC)
Lower Seletar Reservoir Park (helmed by Nee Soon South CSC)
How will the 5KM/10KM individual and team run be conducted?
