Started in 2011, Run & Raisin’ is an annual charity run and carnival organised by TOUCH Young Arrows (TYA). Ban Leong Technologies Limited supported Run and Raisin 2014 on 5th July 2014 as a Platinum sponsor.

This year, it aims to raise $250,000 to benefit some 400 needy children and families of TYA where the net proceeds raised will benefit TYA clients and their families. In addition, Run & Raisin’ hopes to increase public awareness of TYA’s work in the community, as well as promote family bonding and a healthy lifestyle.

These funds will be channeled towards helping the needy and disadvantaged children aged between 6 to 12, low-income, single-parent and dysfunctional families as many of these children have little or no parental care and are at risk of falling into bad company. With the funds, TYA aims to help these children realize their potential through educational, social, emotional and moral support.

Through this activity, Run & Raisin’ provides our staff with the opportunity to challenge ourselves keep fit and have fun with friends and family at one of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks – Gardens By the Bay.
