for Wishes 2020
We have concluded our very first virtual Santa Run for Wishes 2020 in December. It is an annual community and fundraising event by Make-A-Wish Singapore, this year’s Santa Run for Wishes saw participation from 1,035 runners from 2-19 December 2020.
Thanks to the support from members of public, the total distance recorded is 22,687km – well ahead of the initial aim of 21,517km – the distance from Singapore to the North Pole to bring Santa back to Singapore to spread the festive joy. Leading up to the race period, participants in the run also took part in Santa’s little activities such as bi-weekly giveaways, Best Dressed competition, and more. Special mentions to Gary Lim, who was the event’s Longest Distance Runner, clocking in an impressive 229.24km.
Big thanks to our sponsors, Allianz SE Reinsurance Asia, Ascapia Capital, FairPrice Foundation, Marina Central, SAP and TE Capital Partners, for making Santa Run for Wishes 2020 a success.
Together with SAP volunteers, Make-A-Wish Singapore was also able to deliver toys to wish children, as part of the Santa on Wheels initiative to bring the celebration to their homes during this festive season. Thank you SAP and Hasbro for the gift sponsorship!
