A Message from Ong Tze Boon
Before Nation is Community; before Community is Family; and before Family, Self/Mind/Heart.
This year, as we mark 200 years Singapore, we take this opportunity to remind ourselves of Community & Family by way of stepping forward with Self/Mind/Heart.
200 Runners running in joint-community effort, demonstrating our unity regardless of strong or weak, faster or slower, fortunate or less fortunate, and only by helping one another, together completing 2,000km in 200 hours.
Not only am I a member of the organizing committee, but I (too) am also a Runner. I cannot be more thrilled than to be able to be a part of this community effort.
In advance, thanking everyone for their support and contributions in making it Singapore.
Ong Tze Boon, Co-Chairman
A Message from Bennett Neo
Fishing village....colonial outpost....trading port....transportation hub....global megacity...we have come a long way.
Singapore would not have been possible without the contributions of all. Everyone contributed in their own special way, in different areas, different fields, at different times.
This bicentennial year, we all come together to celebrate the becoming of Singapore. 200 Singaporeans and residents representing people from all walks of life will attempt to complete this meaningful relay, and raise funds for the needy and unfortunate, specifically for the 67 charities under President Star Challenge.
On behalf of our committee, I would like to thank you for your efforts, be it as a donor, sponsor, partner, runner, volunteer or cheerleader.
Bennett Neo, Co-Chairman
