Make-A-Wish Singapore announces the return of its annual community and fundraising event, Santa Run for Wishes 2021. Returning in a virtual format for a second time, the run will be held from 1-19 December 2021 with exciting activities lined up for all participants.
Similar to last year, Make-A-Wish Singapore renews the call for participants to join the race and bring Santa back to Singapore from the North Pole. Runners will be able to contribute to the 21,517km journey by submitting their distance through the 42Race application (available for download on App Store and Google Play).
This year, participants in the virtual run can clock in as much distance as they want and unlock e-badges along the way at the 3km, 5km, 10km, 20km or 50km (accumulative) milestone.
Registration for the run is now open here for FREE till 19 December 2021. The run’s kick-off will be on 1 December 2021.
The virtual run drew as many as 1,035 participants last year, clocking an impressive distance of 22,687km to bring Santa back – well over the targeted 21,517km, representing the distance from Singapore to the North Pole.
