For Nation, With Nation!
57 is young for a nation which is still very much a work-in-progress. Rejoicing one of our national songs which goes like this, “There was a time when people said that Singapore won’t make it but we did…” and proudly indeed, we have since emerged from a Third World nation to First World. Nation building is a never-ending mission so that our beloved country will continue to progress and prosper for future generations to come.
This is a hybrid physical walk event where participants get to use the newly launched IRC mobile application to embark on their own training program which will then lead to the physical walk on 30 July, Saturday in Sentosa. Though this is not a competitive event but the primary goal is to encourage our participants to train up and be ready for the main event. For the accomplishment, participants get to earn a limited edition SG57 Nation Walk medallion upon completion.
All said, SG57 Nation Walk aims to get true-blue Singaporeans regardless of age or gender to come together as “One people, One Nation” and dedicate this meaningful walk to Singapore on her 57th birthday. Other nationals residing in Singapore are also welcome to join in too.
