BE A RUNNER, BE A FUNDRAISER!
1. What is New Life Charity Run?
New Life Charity Run is an online fundraising campaign organised by New Life Community Services by riding with CSC’s “Run by the Bay” event. We encourage people to form a team of runners and then rally their networks to donate to New Life. It’s basically like a ‘peer-to-peer fundraising’ wherein we leverage on our supporters (runners) to fundraise on our behalf. As runners, you also become fundraisers!
2. What are the event details?
Date: 20 October 2018, Saturday
Venue: Gardens by The Bay East
Category: 6.1km non-competitive
3. Can we run under different distance aside from 6.1km category?
No. The campaign is only for runners for the 6.1 km category as we all want to gather together to flag off at the same time at 7.30pm. Different categories flag off at different timings.
