Run for Hope 2020
November 4 - December 31$35 – $57
Since its inception in 1993, the annual Run for Hope aims to raise much-needed awareness, funds, and support for cancer research, with the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) as the beneficiary.
More than 10,000 people are diagnosed with cancer every year, with the disease accounting for 1 in 4 deaths in Singapore. Hence, it is no longer rare to find someone we know who is or was affected by cancer. Research projects spearheaded by National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) are crucial in bringing hope to all who live with the shadow of cancer in their lives. Through continuous support, Run for Hope can make a difference in the lives of those affected.
In light of existing government regulations and current sentiments towards large-scale events, the Run for Hope organising committee has decided to convert Run for Hope 2020 into a virtual run.
The virtual run will take place from 4 November to 31 December 2020.
This is to ensure that we provide the safest possible experience for our participants, while still
supporting cancer patients and research in Singapore.
The 3.5km and 10km race categories will remain the same, but a new 25km category has been added for runners who want to run a longer distance. Runners can choose to complete their chosen category in one go, or run the distance over a few runs within the period of 4 November to 31 December 2020.
If you are already a registered participant, no additional action is required on your part as your run slot will be automatically converted to the new virtual run. Please visit this link for a step-by-step guide on how to submit your run results.
Registrations through our Run For Hope 2020 website will remain open until 2359 Hours on 31 December 2020 for all who want to support this worthy cause. Participants’ race packs will be couriered to their mailing addresses upon submission of run results.
Please keep a lookout on our website www.runforhope.sg and our Facebook page for further updates. You may also support our cancer cause by making a donation towards cancer research through https://www.giving.sg/campaigns/rfh2020
Dates: 4 Nov to 31 Dec 2020
