Our Campaign Storyends 14 Nov 2020, 11:59 PM
For consecutive years, SGX has organised three key fundraising events - Charity Golf, Charity Futsal and Charity Run - and these events have enabled our community to raise S$39 million over the last 16 years, helping some 50 charities.
For the first time, our annual Charity Run will be transformed into a virtual fundraiser to ensure the well-being of participants while we go the extra mile for a good cause.
To be held from 30 October to 13 November 2020, the 17th edition of the SGX Bull Charge Virtual Charity Run will kick off with a virtual Chief Challenge involving CEOs and chiefs of companies. Participants in the virtual Mass Run will each run at their own pace and space to form a massive bull symbol, with the aim of achieving a collective distance of 100,000km.
SGX is matching contributions dollar for dollar up to the first S$1 million raised and a further S$5 for every 1km completed, up to S$500,000.
Partnering Community Chest, all proceeds will be channelled to the adopted beneficiaries for 2020 - AWWA Ltd., Autism Association (Singapore), Fei Yue Community Services, HCSA Community Services and Shared Services for Charities.
