Nothing beats spending a Sunday morning with a group of volunteers and the SportCares team in keeping our coastal area at the Pasir Ris Park in a tip-top condition for the protection and safe living of the marine lives.
Being blessed with beautiful weather, some took a slow walk to their destinated zone while the participants in the upcoming Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon, Toyota Ekiden Relay on the 4th December 2021, decided to incorporate a 3.5km run to their zone as part of their training. Li Foundation’s chairman, Lionel is one of the runners making up to a total of 4 teams representing SportCares this year.
Running along the coastline, the teams completed their training and arrived at the meeting point for cooling down and collection of their tool bags. Paired up in groups of 2, maintaining social distancing and keeping their masks on at all times, each pair was off to work with a recycled bag containing 2 pairs of gloves, tongs and a trash bag for bagging. We were also reminded to ensure our clean-up is eco-friendly and not forgetting personal safety. After which, trash was separated and tracked before they were consolidated for safe disposal.
With great teamwork and diligence, the coast was clean in no time. Some of us took off from the park while the rest of us walked back to the Sports Centre for a surprise birthday celebration for our photographer volunteer, who always takes incredible photos during our events/activities to safekeep every moment.
Enjoyable times passes by quickly and Li Foundation is delighted to have joined in this meaningful event for a good cause. We look forward to more of such events/activities and hopefully more volunteers can join us in multiplying the effect through little ways, resulting in a magnified impact to our mother nature.
The book showcases how the participants challenged their limits and conquered the World Marathon Challenge and North Pole Marathon to inspire people to challenge their own limits and pursue their dreams boldly.
The book tells the stories behind the event which saw the largest number of people in history running 1045km round Taiwan in 19 days.
