OnePeople.sg, the leading advocate for multiracialism, have been contributing to relentlessly spread the message of harmony and organize the annual Orange Ribbon Run! This year, this special event will be held on 10 September at Bayfront Event Space. If you are undecided, here are 4 reasons why you should join their cause and spread the movement!

  1. Racial harmony – Key to overcoming terror attacks

After the spate of terror attacks that have taken place in Europe, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean urged Singaporeans to strengthen their resolve to maintain peace and racial harmony in the nation.

“By having good racial harmony, it helps us to prevent, it helps us to respond, and it helps us to recover if ever an attack were to take place,” said Mr. Teo and he added, “Activities are a wonderful way to bring people together.”

If there’s ever a race which is particularly meaningful and significant, this is it! We all want to be able to coexist peacefully with our neighbours of different races – and we know that we can’t take racial harmony for granted. Here’s the chance – the Orange Ribbon Run 2016 that serves as a rallying point for Singaporeans to come together and show support for the multiculturalism in our country.

2.  Get your slot quick

They look great! And don’t forget the meaning behind these – In Singapore, the Orange Ribbon is adopted as a symbol of respect, understanding, trust and friendship. So we call on Singaporeans to come together and wear these proud!
