Ever since we completed The Colour Run Singapore 2013 at Sentosa, we have been on the lookout for running events to participate in and we’re happy to say, Jacqueline will be participating in a 10KM Great Eastern Women’s Run 2013 this November at The Float @ Marina Bay. Since it is a women’s run, I won’t be able to participate but I will be there to cheer Jacqueline on and take some shots.
Apart from the Great Eastern Women’s Run, there is also another run that is taking place in the same month too and if you haven’t heard about it, the run is none other than the Run For Hope 2013 that will be taking place on 17 November 2013 at The Promontory @ Marina Bay.
Run For Hope is an annual run organised by Four Seasons Hotel Singapore, Regent Singapore, and the National Cancer Centre Singapore [NCCS] to raise much-needed awareness and support for cancer research.
Since the inaugural run in 1993, Run For Hope has become one of Singapore’s largest runs that raises awareness and support for cancer research. This will be the sixth year that National Cancer Centre Singapore [NCCS] is the beneficiary.
Last year’s Run For Hope 2012 saw more than 10,000 runners, raising close to S$450000 and this year, the organisers aim to draw 15,000 participants and raise a sum of S$600,000 for cancer research. Fundraising efforts have already started at both Four Seasons Hotel Singapore and Regent Hotel Singapore, and to date, over S$3,800 has already been raised by staff, and many more fundraising activities are planned leading up to the November run.

A non-competitive run with two distance options, Run For Hope seeks to draw support across all sectors; the young and the old, individuals, families and groups, clubs and corporate.
On event day, participants stand the chance to win some fantastic prizes, including overseas stays at a number of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
