About Campaign

ends 14 Jul 2017, 12 AM

The FIRST humanitarian charity run in Singapore saw more than 1200 participants took part on 14 August.

The first and non-competitive category, 5KM Relief Aid Challenge, portrays a survivors experience to obtain urgent supplies. During disaster relief operations in the acute relief phase, Mercy Relief distributes aid to survivors. Some come from remote areas and walk through harsh terrains for hours, to relief distribution points to collect relief packs filled with emergency supplies.

Participants will take on a similar challenge as they carry a relief pack weighing 5 to 7kg for an intense 5KM distance of sand and path. Tag teams of two are allowed in this category, in which team members can take turns to carry the relief pack to complete the 5KM race.

All relief packs from the event were be distributed to local families in need to mark Mercy Reliefs observance of World Humanitarian Day.

We would like to thank all our Partners, Sponsors, Participants and Volunteers for making Ground Zero Run for Humanity 2016 a huge success.
