Runners’ Heart-Reach is a Ground Up Movement that was set up in late 2016. Our objective is to bring about a much kinder and gracious running experience within the running community.
Running is a very easy sport that many people take up. We can just put on a pair of running shoes and off we go. Whether a run around our estate or in the parks, it is no wonder that this is a popular sport. However, the ease of the sport also means that we see a huge number of runners who may not be aware of the etiquette of running. We have seen runners spitting on the path, stopping abruptly to take a selfie and even walking/running more than 2 abreast, thus blocking the path. These ungracious acts are sometimes committed unconsciously by the runners.
We intend to share with the public at large on proper running etiquettes through our Kindness Ambassadors. Our 1st batch of Kindness Ambassadors were “recruited” through our inaugural Singapore Kindness Run held on 14th May 2017. They will be sharing these etiquettes with runners they see during their runs either around the neighborhood or even in races.
It is our wish that in time to come, all runners will exhibit more graciousness during their runs to make running a truly enjoyable experience for all. After all, Gracious Running is Gracious Living!
Singapore Kindness Movement
The Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) wants to encourage everyone to start, show and share kindness. We aspire to inspire graciousness one kind act at a time. By sparing a thought for the people around us, we hope to create a gracious society, and make life better for you and me.
In his 1996 New Year Message, then Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong highlighted the need for Singapore to become a gracious society by the 21st century. Considerate social behaviour supported by a strong economy and good government will make Singapore the best home for its people. In line with Mr. Goh’s call to build a gracious society, the Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) was formed in 1997 and aims to encourage Singaporeans to make a positive commitment to gracious living through simple acts of kindness in their daily activities.
SKM supports Runners’ Heart-Reach through their initiative in promoting a gracious running etiquette. The event in May coincides with SKM’s celebration for Kindness Day SG.
