21,517 km. That’s the distance which Make-A-Wish Singapore is hoping to achieve with its virtual Santa Run for Wish 2020.
Why 21,517 km? It’s the distance between Singapore and the North Pole where Santa “lives”. And, in the spirit of fun, this year’s virtual Santa Run for Wishes 2020 will be collectively trying to bring Santa back from the North Pole.
Members of the public taking part in Santa Run for Wishes will not only be helping to “cover” the distance but aiding to make the wishes of children with critical illnesses come true.
It costs $20 to enter into the race will all proceeds going towards granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses.
To date, Make-A-Wish Singapore has granted over 1,560 wishes and counting.
