ABOUT THE RACE

Organised by

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.

benefit the lives of Singaporeans. Just over the last 10 years, the Tote Board Group, comprising of Tote Board, Singapore Pools and
Singapore Turf Club, has contributed more than $6 billion towards nation-building. Since the founding of Singapore Pools in 1968,
we are committed to giving back to the community.

THE SURVIVORS’ JOURNEY
(5KM RELIEF AID CHALLENGE)

During the acute phase of disaster response,
Mercy Relief provides emergency supplies in the
form of relief packs to disaster-hit communities.
Many of the villagers typically have to walk several
hours to and from the relief distribution point, to
collect the relief packs; each typically weighing
5-10kg.
The 5KM Relief Aid Challenge is a non-competitive
category in which participants get to experience
what it is like for the beneficiaries who have to walk
large distances across challenging terrains of a
disaster site to collect the relief packs.

How does it work?
-Participants have to carry a relief pack (5-7kg) for the whole 5km distance.
-There is an option to sign up as a tag team of 2 pax. Team members can take turns to carry
the relief pack for the full 5km course.
-After the event, all relief packs will be distributed to low income families in Singapore (in
celebration of World Humanitarian Day, which falls on 19th August).
