To celebrate International Women’s Day, and in support of Project Pari by Zonta Club of Singapore, we invite you to join us to run or walk a 2.4km route and collectively achieve a total distance of 50km or more within 3 hours!
The idea is to get active and at the same time create awareness about Project Pari and its mission – to inspire and enable young women from lower-income families to attain a positive outlook of the future and to become responsible contributors to society.
All you have to do is to turn up at Bishan Park 2 (Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park) to walk or run a loop of 2.4km. On an average, it takes about 15-20 mins to run-jog a 2.4km loop and about 30-45 mins to walk the same distance. To achieve a distance of 50km in 3 hours, we need collective effort. We either have more than 20 participants to run a 2.4km distance (we hope the turn out is good), if fewer, some participants can help by going for more than one loop.
We target to achieve a collective distance of 50km or more, in 3 hours (180mins). We invite you to appeal to your friends to support by making a small donation to Project Pari – donations of S$10, S$50, S$100 or any amount is welcome.
Project Pari supports less-privileged girls through their secondary school journey providing them with a monthly allowance, life skills course, fun activities and mentorship. It takes only $800 to support a Project Pari’s girl for 1 year. This $800 for 1 year can potentially help empower and enrich the girl’s future! We hope, through the support of this event’s participants and the public, we can raise the fund to support at least 1 girl for 1 year. Click here to DONATE
