Kidney failure is a serious concern in Singapore with nearly 5.5 new kidney failure patients in Singapore every day. The number of new cases has increased by about 60% over the past 10 years with diabetes being the No. 1 cause of kidney failure. More than half who have diabetes are unaware of their condition.

Run Inspired!, an inaugural virtual charity run organised by NKF, aims to achieve a collective distance of 55,000km to advocate kidney health as a nation and raise $200,000 which will go towards providing Artificial Kidneys (dialysers) that are crucial in patients' dialysis treatment to filter out waste and excess fluids.

Menarini Asia-Pacific, the main partner of Run Inspired! 2021, will be donating $2 for every km covered by participants, up to $100,000, increasing the impact of your participation.

Run Details

There are 4 race categories to choose from: 5km, 10km, 21km and 55km. The race distance is cumulative over 21 days from 11th January to 31st January 2021.

With every race entry ticket and T-shirt purchased, you are also donating part of the sales proceeds towards providing Artificial Kidneys.

Attractive Prizes to Be Won

Aside from doing good for society and your body, you can also have a chance to win attractive prizes. Whether it’s for the longest distance, the highest amount raised or an inspiration award, Run Inspired! 2020 has got you covered. Head down to our website to check out the details for each category.
