A Run with a Purpose: Singapore Kindness Run 2017 and a Giveaway

We are not parents who generally exercise, unfortunately. The only running I seem to do is the kind that involves keeping up with the kids, who are super fast on their scooters these days! Our two boys, however, love to run, in particular our older one. He exclaims very proudly, "I can run as fast as a cheetah!" before doing another dash.

When we told him he'd be participating in the upcoming Kindness Run on May 14, 2017, Z got really excited and starting practising immediately. "Watch me run, Mummy!" The 800 metre Kid's Dash is a perfect start for children who have not raced before, like mine. There will be two categories - Ages 7 to 9, and 10 to 12 years. 

The Kid's Dash is at 9.30 am in the peaceful and picturesque Pasir Ris Park, and follows the 10 kilometre Men's and Women's Competitive Run, which flags off earlier at 7 am. The whole Kindness Run aims to be a family affair, with its emphasis on kind acts and good running etiquette encouraged during the race. There will be experiential learning stations along the way with race etiquette tips.

The mascot for the race is our good ol' Singa the lion, a symbol of kindness (in my generation), but whom the kids have become quite familiar with since they collected the different versions of our friendly national lion during National Day a few years back. The children can even look forward to photo-ops with Singa himself on the race day!

Kids who sign up for the Kid's Dash will be entitled to an exciting race pack, which includes a Kid's Runners Tee, Racing Bib, Finisher Medal, and a Drawstring bag.The top three finishers will win an NDP Singa Box Set. Imagine - a complete collection of every single Singa there is!
