We are in the season of disruption and uncertainty. No one saw it coming; that the COVID-19 outbreak would have turned the nation topsy-turvy. In this troubled time where society is in turmoil, the social service is on over-drive mode reaching out to people in need.
The inaugural REACH Charity Run 2020 is birthed out of Covid-19 context to raise awareness and much-needed funds to support our essential services. Participants can choose to contribute $30 or $50 and be our Ambassador of Hope by completing a distance of 3Km or 5Km during the period of 1st – 21st December at any location, time and pace.
We thank you for being our Ambassador of Hope so that others will know that Hope is with REACH!
