ABOUT THE RACE
When disaster strikes, it is easy to see those affected as victims: desolate, destitute, and
defeated. Here at Mercy Relief, we see things differently. We see people coming together to
help one another, fight back, and protect their way of life. We witness their indomitable spirit,
and are committed to supporting it.
Held in observance of world humanitarian day, Mercy Relief’s Ground Zero Run for Humanity
aims to celebrate this indomitable human spirit as we stand in solidarity with the survivors who
have inspired humanitarian work around the world.
This year we are expanding our sustainability practices across the event through partnerships
with organisations like the Food Bank Singapore and programmes including Linens For Life™.
Thank you for joining us in raising awareness for humanitarian relief efforts in the region.
