NTUC FairPrice Walk For Rice⁺ @ South East
On 21 Oct 2023, NTUC FairPrice (FairPrice) and South East Community Development Council (South East CDC) launched the 15th edition of its annual FairPrice Walk for Rice+ @ South East. The launch saw more than 1,500 participants engaging in various fun activities such as K-pop exercise, spin and best dressed competition. This is double the number of attendees in previous years.
The 10 week-long initiative, running from 21 Oct to 31 Dec 2023, is geared towards encouraging individuals to build stronger relationships within the community and to stay active by walking or running and clocking their distance for a good cause.
Since its inauguration in 2009, the Walk for Rice+ @ South East has garnered more interest over the years and has observed an increase in its total mileage from 61,583 kilometres in 2009 to more than tenfold with over 1 million kilometres in 2023.
For every 300 metres of walking or running recorded, FairPrice Foundation will donate 1 bowl of white rice, 1 bowl of brown rice and 1 bowl of oatmeal to a vulnerable family residing in South East District. This year, South East CDC and FairPrice is aiming to raise 500,000 bowls of white rice and brown rice and 50,000 bowls of oats, to benefit 7,000 beneficiaries within the South East District.
