Your Heart Matters!

Since inception, Run For Light has always been the ‘beacon of light’ to the visually impaired ones through our long term partnership with Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS).

The 8th edition of Run For Light has fused ‘Light’ and ‘Heart’ together, thus the theme for 2023 – Your Heart Matters! Through Run For Light event, it is hoped the combination of ‘Light’ and ‘Heart’ will reach out to our community to exercise empathy & compassion to those who are less privileged than us as well as to stay active & healthy for our heart sake.

Supported by SportSG, Run For Light 2023 is scheduled on 18 March, Saturday at Punggol Waterway Park at 1700 hour. In partnership with Jalan Kayu CSN for the first time, the annual run event will engage Punggol and Jalan Kayu residents to participate in the event as part of community engagement.
