Fun Run @Bird Park
Emcee Singapore: Charmaine kicked off the leisurely Fun Run @BirdPark for 2,000 SIA Engineering Company staff when the inclement weather cleared just in time for flagoff.
Some participants were decked in colourful attire inspired by the habitants in the Bird Park surrounded by the calls of nature. Many of their adorable moments were captured at the photo booth.
We were joined by students from Yuneng Primary School, a beneficiary of ‘Food from the Heart’ (FFTH), a charity adopted by the Company since 2012.
The Fun Run @BirdPark organisers managed to raise a total of $50,000 for FFTH. The charity, founded to channel surplus food from bakeries, has distributed $7.2 million worth of food to families in need in 2021.
There was enthusiastic support in making friendship bands using upcycled fabric and keychain using plastic bottle caps.
The crowd cheered as this corporate run event at the park is historic because it is the last run before its move to its new premises in Mandai in January next year.
Families and friends spent some time after the run to appreciate the park’s legacy and rich heritage.
