Orange Ribbon Run 2014: Race Against Racism Returns in August
The Orange Ribbon Run is Singapore's only running event against racism, and its inaugural Orange Ribbon Run in 2013 brought more than 5,000 participants from all walks of life. Dressed in orange with the slogan "Race Against Racism", these participants truly brought out their belief in the Cause, to make a stand together, and join the movement against racism and discrimination.
Entering its second year, the race encourages Singaporeans to embrace diversity and stand against any form of racial prejudice. Join the Orange Ribbon Run 2014 on 16 August and celebrate harmony through the spirit of friendship, respect, trust and understanding.
Join the Orange Ribbon Celebrations in July
The Orange Ribbon Run is part of the Orange Ribbon Celebrations, a signature national event in July to celebrate Racial Harmony and a focal point to promote understanding, appreciation and trust among Singapore's multi-racial and multi-religious society.
You can be a part of the Orange Ribbon Celebrations too! Apart from joining the Orange Ribbon Run, you can support the cause by wearing an orange ribbon worn to show support for racial and religious harmony in the month of July. Or you can dress up orange on Racial Harmony Day (21 July) and celebrate Singapore as a racially harmonious nation built on rich diversity of culture and heritage.
