Santa Run for Wishes Fun Run
Join us for a festive and fun event for a good cause. Each participant in this fun run is given a Santa t-shirt to participate in a non-competitive fun run at Gardens by the Bay. There are 2km and 5km routes to choose from. There is also a best-dressed competition on the day for those who want to get more creative with their outfits. As well as the run, the event includes a festive carnival with arcade games, food and snacks. In the afternoon, before the race begins, the foundation throws a big Christmas party for those children who have been granted wishes and their families.
How does all this silliness help sick kids?
The Santa Run for Wishes raises funds for the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Singapore. The charity provides one-off fun experiences to the sick kids it supports, many of whom have chronic illness but are not necessarily terminally ill. Since 2002, they have worked with children aged 3-18 years old with life threatening conditions to design a memorable and fun experience just for them.
