Run for Heroes 2020
27 May - 8 August
Run for Heroes 2020 is a new virtual running initiative that aims to build a national movement of support for Singapore’s healthcare and service frontliners during the COVID-19 pandemic. The event is supported by Sport Singapore (SportSG) through the Active Enabler Programme (AEP) and #SGUnited.
Participants will be entitled to two red and white wristbands that will serve as a unifying symbol of support. Upon completion of a one kilometre run, one wristband will be sent to the participant while the other will be sent to a frontline hero with a personalised message of thanks. Besides medical professionals, these frontline heroes include individuals such as cleaners, security staff, transport workers and staff manning quarantine and isolation facilities.
The race distance should be completed by 11.59pm on August 8.
