I’mPOSSIBLE Buddy Run 2021 (decentralised)
Date: 18 February to 30 September 2021
Target Audience: Preschool students, Primary School students and Tertiary School students
Experience the Paralympic values by conducting a buddy run modelled after the guided run, an event for athletes with visual impairment at the Paralympic Games. Pair up and take turns to be blindfolded – one sighted runner guides a blindfolded partner to complete the run while holding hands or being linked via a towel or rope. You may also choose to run on your own.
There is no minimum distance that one must run blindfolded. SDSC's intention is to encourage everyone to experience running without vision. They encourage everyone to give it a try in a safe environment.
Complete a minimum distance of 4.8 km individually (no maximum distance) and submit your achievement to SDSC. They will add your distances (single person or in pairs) to a national tally. SDSC's goal is to clock a total distance of 10,625 km, to commemorate their Paralympians’ journey from Singapore to Tokyo, Japan, and back.
Please be reminded to adhere to the prevailing Government COVID-19 safe management measures guidelines on physical exercise and activities. Have a safe run!
