For their first initiative in Singapore, TCRP chose to support Runninghour, an inclusive running club that promotes integration of people with special needs through running. Runninghour seeks to attract sport professionals and passionate runners to team up with a Runninghour member who may be mildly intellectually, physically or visually challenged. With their buddies, members can safely participate in training runs and running events throughout the year.
Leading up to The Color Run, Runninghour members with their Team TCRP buddies were hard at work and play at Bukit Batok Nature Park and Toa Payoh Stadium. For two consecutive Saturday mornings they trekked, jogged through narrow trails, ran up hills and stairs all the while talking, laughing and getting to know their TCRP buddies. Runninghour members even had enough energy to show off their athletic prowess at the fitness circuit!
volunteer hours commited
As Team TCRP’s continued commitment to Runninghour, TCRP volunteers will keep spreading the happiness by joining their Runninghour buddies for at least three more training runs and beyond.
“I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF!” Well, Team TCRP is deeply proud of you, Wei Keong and all your Runninghour friends. Keep on following your passion for running and inspiring the rest of us. Because of you, the running community is more colorful and spirited! Thank you for brightening up our lives.
