The 15th edition of the Charity Run, held at Marina Bay, was the grand finale to a year-long programme that included a golf tournament in June and celebrity futsal matches in September. SGX’s business, data and technology partners gave their financial support at a Market Access Night in August as well as a Technology Symposium in September. Through the year, SGX staff also cooked meals for seniors and brought them out on excursions under the SGX Cares series.
Ms. Grace Fu, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth, was Guest-of-Honour at the Charity Run, flagging off about 5,600 runners for the 5km Mass Run & Obstacle Challenge. International stars from ONE Championship, the official SGX Bull Charge fitness partner, led the mass warm-up. Forty-four CEOs and chiefs of companies joined the 3km Chief Challenge, winding through some of downtown Singapore’s most iconic sights.
At the Festival Village this year, we had bicycle-themed fringe activities, food trucks from Old Chang Kee and Sawadee Cup, burgers from Fat Boy, sandwiches from El Cubanos and refreshing coconuts from Fruitopia to keep the crowd busy.
A total of 162 corporate sponsors supported this year’s programme, including Preferred Partners Oxley Holdings Ltd. and SLB Development Ltd., along with Diamond Bull Sponsors Cisco, Dell EMC, Jubilant Pharma and Thai Beverage.
