The Yellow Ribbon Prison Run is a race to complete the distance, while bearing in mind the difficult journey ahead for ex-offenders. The highlight of the activity will see runners given the rare opportunity to complete the run in Changi Prison Complex and enjoy performances by the inmate band from the Performing Arts Centre. This activity attracts an estimated crowd of 9,000 annually.

Since its inception in 2009, the run has raised more than $1mil for the Yellow Ribbon Fund. This year, in celebration of the run's 10th anniversary, the team-of-four category will be represented by 10 special teams formed by ex-offenders to lead the run and raise funds to support the cause.

Pledge your support to the teams now!
Stay tuned for more information on the team line-up.

About the Charity

Every year, more than 10,000 ex-offenders complete their sentences and are released from the various prisons and drug rehabilitation centres (DRCs). It is disheartening that ex-offenders have to live with the stigma of having served time behind bars when they are released from prison, one that can often be more punishing than the prison sentence itself. Many ex-offenders, once released, find themselves literally stepping into a second prison. This time it would be a prison with invisible bars, of suspicion, of mistrust and of discrimination.The best rehabilitation regime during incarceration is of no use if ex-offenders find themselves rejected at every turn when they are released into the larger community.Your generous donation to the Yellow Ribbon Fund will go a long way to help us fund rehabilitative and aftercare programmes, which are the supporting mechanisms to facilitate the reintegration of an individual back to the community and his family.
