STEP UP FOR A GOOD CAUSE AT BARE YOUR SOLE 2014
Habitat for Humanity Singapore’s annual walkathon Bare Your Sole is back again this year on Saturday 12th July 2014. This annual event will, once again, provide participants with a unique way to raise funds in the fight against homelessness and poverty.
Currently in its sixth year, the annual event encourages participants to walk barefoot to support those living in poverty and unable to afford basic amenities, such as shelter and clothing.
Mr Yong Teck Meng, National Director of Habitat for Humanity Singapore said:
“After five years of organising Bare Your Sole it is important to acknowledge the good work done by individuals and corporations in singapore to create positive change in our community. We are thankful for their generosity and we hope to unite people from all walks of life to join Bare Your Sole 2014, and show their support for those living in poverty.“
Besides walking barefoot for a good cause, Bare Your Sole 2014 promises to be a fun-filled family event with food stations by popular eating destinations such as Dean & Deluca and Cold Stone Creamery. A variety of activities for children, including roving performances by stilt walkers, percussionists and balloon sculptors will entertain the young and the young at heart. Participants can also stand to win attractive prizes at a raffle draw open to all.
Where to the funds go?
Funds raised will benefit Habitat for Humanity Singapore’s local programme Project HomeWorks, an intiative designed to improve the living conditions of the elderly, the sick and the physically challenged living in one-room flats across the nation.
It was reported in Parliament in 2012 that as many as 35,000 elderly in Singapore live alone in unsafe and unsanitary conditions and this number is projected to rise to 83,000 by 2030.
So, STEP UP FOR A GOOD CAUSE and Register now until 15th June 2014 to Bare Your Sole at this fun-filled family event.
