Make-A-Wish Singapore’s annual run goes virtual for the second year in a row, encouraging Singaporeans to make the wishes of children with critical illnesses come true.

Since the distance between Singapore and the North Pole is about 21,517km, the foundation hopes for participants to collectively help reach that target to bring Santa back from the North Pole.

From Dec 1 to 19, participants can clock in as much distance as they wish and unlock e-badges along the way at 3km, 5km, 10km, 20km, or 50km accumulative checkpoints.

The runner who clocks in the longest distance will also receive a customised Santa Run for Wishes trophy.

The run’s kick-off will be on Dec 1. Sign up for free by Dec 19 here

Make-A-Wish Singapore has other activities and prizes lined up during the season of giving as well.

Run in style in a festive costume and share it with Make-A-Wish Singapore on the 42Race application and stand a chance to be crowned ‘Best Dressed Runner’, as well as be featured on their social media pages.

Runners can also get creative with their running routes and submit their ‘artwork’ on the 42Race application for a chance to win best creative route and be crowned On-The-Run-Art Winner.

There will also be a monthly lucky draw and a grand draw for the event selected from the list of registered runners.

Santa Run merchandise is also up for grabs to commemorate your good deeds. A Santa and reindeer pin can be purchased at just $9.80 and their signature t-shirts will be priced at $12 for both adults and kids.

All proceeds will go directly to the organisation to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses. You can also contribute to the cause by directly donating to it here.
