4 Meaningful Runs That Will Give You An Excuse To Exercise

Let’s face it: Given the choice, most of us would rather be doing anything else besides breaking a sweat. Sometimes, you just need a good excuse to motivate yourself. So, why not check out these runs and get your blood pumping while supporting a meaningful cause?

1. Let’s Take A Walk 2019


Not a good runner? Don’t sweat it! Let’s Take A Walk is all about endurance rather than speed, encouraging participants to push themselves to their personal limits while raising funds for a good cause. This year, the event is partnering with the Rare Disorders Society Singapore, which aims to raise awareness on various little-known life-threatening diseases such as Lysosomal Storage Disorder, a condition which affects the digestive system, or Antley Bixler Syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes skeletal abnormalities.
