On Sunday, 14 May 2017, is a significant day, here Our Parenting World team would like to wish all Mothers, Happy Mother’s Day! Another meaningful event is Singapore’s first ever Kindness Run happening on Sunday morning. We are so excited to be able to participate in Singapore’s first ever Kindness Run. Singapore Kindness Run was well-received and about 1000 signups participated in this gracious run where the run will see participants practiced good running etiquette at Pasir Ris Park.

Singapore Kindness Run is a ground up initiative by Runners’ Heart-Reach, in collaboration with Singapore Kindness Movement, aimed to help build a kinder running community.

Participants can take part in various fringe activities having Tattoos done, selfies opportunities, find out more about running etiquette and more. Singapore Kindness Movement hoped to encourage participants through racing and engaging in various fringe activities, graciousness will be advocated as a whole community.
