RACE CATEGORIES

  • Team Ah Meng & Team Chawang: Run for the Forest

    Run for the Forest: Championed by #TeamAhMeng and #TeamChawang

     

    Across the globe, forests are shrinking to make way for development and human activities. Conversion of forests to other use have led to loss of habitat and food source affecting the survival of wildlife.

     

    • ‘Run for the Forest’ is championed by Team Ah Meng and Team Chawang! They are here to raise awareness on deforestation and protect the homes of their forest inhabitant friends.
    • Forest cover in South East Asia has reduced from 70% to less than 20% over the past 4 decades.
    • SEA is one of the world’s BIODIVERSITY HOTSPOTS  with more than 1700 species discovered in the past 15 years, average of 2 species per week!

     

    SEA also has one of the HIGHEST deforestation rates globally

    Take your first step and join Team Ah Meng and Team Chawang to save the homes of forest inhabitants! By joining this team, you pledge to start using sustainable sourced products such as FSC certified items.

     

  • Team Canola: Run for Clean Water

    Run for Clean Water: Championed by #TeamCanola

     

    Rivers, wetlands and oceans are choked with plastic waste, mostly from land rubbish. This plastic waste is harmful to wildlife and us. Many river dwelling wildlife get entangled in abandoned fishing nets, plastic bags and other plastic litter. While others mistake plastic waste for food which chokes their digestive system.

     

    ‘Run for Clean Water’ is championed by Team Canola! She is garnering support to protect her river dwelling friends by reducing single use plastic that have destroyed their homes.

     

    • Every Minute – an equivalent of one garbage truck full of plastic waste enters the oceans.
    • 800 million kg of plastic is discarded every year in Singapore; only 6% is recycled
    • SEA countries are among the global top plastic consumers
    • By 2050 – there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight

     

    Join Team Canola to provide a cleaner home for river dwellers. By joining her team, you pledge to reduce the use of single use plastic by using refillable water bottles.

     

  • Team Sunny: Run for Clean Air

    Air pollution might not always be visible, but it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Polluted air affects all living things, humans and wildlife are no exception to its impact. It has also resulted in climate change and a variety of health issues ranging from direct deaths to chronic conditions and diseases.

     

    ‘Run for Clean Air’ is championed by Team Sunny! He is here to raise awareness for a cleaner air.

     

    • Air pollution grew more than 5% from 2008 to 2013 in more than two-thirds of SEA cities.
    • 4 of 5 most polluted cities listed by the World Health Organisation are in Asia
    • Acid rain caused by polluted air can change the quality of the soil and water affecting the homes of wildlife.

     

    Be part of Team Sunny to inspire and provide a cleaner home for everyone! By joining his team, you pledge to reduce your carbon footprint by taking public transport instead of driving your car!
