By  |  0 Comments

Run For Hope 2023 is celebrating their 30th edition of the longest-running event for cancer awareness and research.

The event will take place on 17 December 2023 at Event Square @ Marina Bay.

Organised annually by Four Seasons Hotel Singapore since 1993, in partnership with the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) since 2008, Run For Hope continues to be the largest running event in support of cancer research in Singapore.

According to the Singapore Cancer Registry’s 2021 report, an average of 16,800 individuals were diagnosed with cancer each year between 2017 to 2021

Despite significant advances in cancer research, much more can be done to further improve cancer care. Run For Hope serves as a platform to raise awareness and garner support for critical cancer research conducted by dedicated scientists at the NCCS.

The event stands as a beacon of hope, offering solace and encouragement to individuals impacted by this disease. In 2022, funds raised by Run For Hope participants reached a cumulative total of more than SGD$1.8M for cancer research, with a goal to raise more this year.

More than just a run, Run For Hope uplifts our community by bringing everyone together for a fun, healthy activity that promotes awareness for cancer research and patient support programmes.

This year’s edition of Run For Hope includes race categories with distances of 3km and 10km along the scenic route overlooking Singapore’s iconic skyline.

Continuing its tradition as a non-competitive recreational run, the event warmly welcomes individuals of all ages and all walks of life to come together and help foster a sense of unity for the community.
