Hooray! We will be 56 on 9 Aug this year, young for a nation with lofty aspirations to make our city most livable and harmonious. A shout out to all Singaporeans – let us come together and do a 5.6KM virtual nation walk during the month of August to commemorate Singapore’s 56th birthday.
It has been another challenging period that has kept us on our toes but come what may, a special day like this should not deter us from doing something meaningful for our country as long as we abide to safe distancing measures while outside. For extra precaution, you can even choose to do the walk on treadmill in the comfort of your home. Indoor or outdoor, it’s perfectly fine with us. So, let’s do it. One for all; all for one - Majulah Singapura!
