The COVID-19 pandemic continues to loom over our daily lives and life has been disrupted in many ways. However, the pandemic affects people disproportionately. Certain communities in Singapore are hit harder by the pandemic and require additional support to ensure they tide by this uncertain period.

As part of their The Speed Project DIY initiative, The High Panters are working together with Majulah Movement to give back to the community.   

The Speed Project

The Speed Project (TSP) is traditionally a 550 KM unsanctioned relay from Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles to Las Vegas. Due to the pandemic, TSP has evolved into a decentralised concept of the desert classic called TSPDIY, challenging teams and solo runners to get creative in how they choose to spend their 31 hours and 15 minutes, which is the current record time.

The race commences for everyone on September 5th 2020 at 7pm SGT, wherever participants are in the world, challenged to log as many miles as possible over the given time period.

The High Panters (THP), a running group in Singapore, has been invited for this very special race. However, instead of just doing it as a personal challenge and bragging rights glory, they decided to join hands with Majulah Movement to put a special spin onto this race.

Joint Initiative with Majulah Movement

THP And Majulah Movement has decided on a target of 869 KM to hit over 5th to 6th September 2020. 869 KM is the total distance Majulah Movement has covered over the last few months, delivering meal packs across the island to over 5,000 beneficiaries that include migrant friends, healthcare heroes and the elderly from low income families. 

Participation is free and if the target is met, a corporate sponsor will also be pledging a sum (equal to a month’s worth of food) towards their efforts.

THP is aiming to pledge 300 KM from their TSPDIY challenge so they will need help with the remaining 569 KM.

More about the Majulah Movement

Majulah stands for “Onward” and Majulah Movement is led by a handful of individuals who want to keep moving onward by making an impact for those who most need their support. They are raising funds to purchase and deliver set meals and treat packs for healthcare staff and migrant workers. In the process of doing so, they partner small family-run businesses to larger chains, as well as drivers so as to support these groups as well.

More about The High Panters

The High Panters (THP) is a Singapore run crew focused on community building & raising social awareness and funds for communities-in-need.  THP’s primary focus is to build community –within our own group, the local running community, and communities in need.

THP was founded in 2012 when its co-founders, Eugene Lim and Kenneth Lim signed up to do an urban obstacle course race and wanted to raise awareness and funds for lesser privileged communities, using running as a platform to do so. The name comes from a time when our co-founders played rugby together in high school, and after training one evening pulled their shorts up high to their waists and performed the Haka. There is a professional rugby club called The Otago Highlanders, and combining the two, the name The High Panters was born.
