Support Cancer Research with the Run For Hope 2020 Virtual Run

Cancer remains a concern in Singapore and you can show your support by joining this race.

BY | UPDATED 5 MONTHS AGO

Run For Hope (RFH) is an annual run organised by Four Seasons Hotel Singapore and the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) to raise much-needed awareness and support for cancer research. For more than 30 years, the Four Seasons group of hotel & resorts across the world have been deeply committed to the cause of advancing cancer research. The Four Seasons Hotel Singapore has been supporting local cancer research through an annual run, since 1993, making this the single largest run in aid of cancer research here.

The 27th edition of the run was originally scheduled for 23rd February 2020 but has been converted to a virtual run from 4 November to 31 December 2020. Run for Hope aims for the best of both worlds, providing the safest possible experience for their participants while still supporting cancer patients and research in Singapore.

Each year, more than 10,000 people are diagnosed with cancer. It is no longer rare to find someone you know or love is or was affected by cancer. The threat of cancer is very real with the disease accounting for 1 in 4 deaths in Singapore. However, with advances in science and robust cancer research activities, we are hopeful that the progressive breakthroughs made by the NCCS team can lead to a cure.

Funds raised net operating cost will be donated to NCCS Cancer Fund. Through your continuous support, we can make a difference in the lives of those affected. Let’s make a brighter future, without cancer.

Registered Participants and New Participants are Both Welcome!

The event maintains its tradition as a non-competitive leisure run. So, everyone; anyone; young & old, can join in the worthy cause & fun.

If you are already a registered participant, your run slot will be automatically converted to the new virtual run. Please visit this link for a step-by-step guide on how to submit your run results.

Registrations through our Run for Hope 2020 website will remain open until 2359 Hours on 31 December 2020 for all who want to support this worthy cause. Participants’ race packs will be couriered to their mailing addresses upon submission of run results.

New Race Category

The 3.5km and 10km race categories will remain the same, but a new 25km category has been added for runners who want to run a longer distance. Runners can choose to complete their chosen category in one go or run the distance over a few runs within the period of 4 November to 31 December 2020.

Push your limits this December, especially if you will be going out for a feast or two this festive season.
