With the impact of COVID-19, Run For Light 2020 had to postpone their physical event initially slated for 22 February to a virtual format on 25 July. Participants were instructed to download a tracker app and completed the run at their own time and place. This was then timed and ranked in their respective gender and race category.
Run For Light has partnered with Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS) for the 4th time in 2020. Funds were raised from voluntary donations from the runners and the registration proceeds (for every participant that registered for the event, $2 was donated to GDS).
A total sum of more than $6,000 was raised! We would like to especially thank the Run For Light organisers and participants for making this event possible, and for their long-standing support towards the visually impaired community and guide dogs.
GDS is a non-profit voluntary welfare organisation, and has been accorded Charity status by the Commissioner of Charities. We are registered with the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) as an associate member and holds an Institute of Public Character status.
