To help mark its 100th Anniversary, the U.S. State Department's Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) is sponsoring a DSS Global Race for Charity to take place at 100+ locations overseas and in the United States. DSS is using this event to assist worthy charitable causes around the globe.

Join us here in Singapore as we raise funds for Special Olympics in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of Diplomatic Security. We are holding a 5K run/walk in the Botanic Gardens on September 22, 2016 at 6 pm. The cost of the race is S$50, which includes a t-shirt. Participants are encouraged to donate additional funds to benefit Special Olympics in Singapore.

If signing up to run the run/walk 5K, please e-mail your name and t-shirt size to [email protected]

About the Charity

Special Olympics (SO) Singapore was set up in April 1983 as an adjunct committee of the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and the Association for Educationally Sub-Normal Children now known as Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN). Subsequently, it was officially registered as an independent voluntary welfare organisation with the Registrar of Societies on 15 January 1991 and as a charity with the Commissioner of Charities on 22 February 1994. SO Singapore is affiliated to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC). SO Singapore is recognised by Sport Singapore, formerly known as Singapore Sports Council, as a National Sports Association (NSA). SO Singapore is also a certified Institute of Public Character (IPC) organisation.
