About Us ...

To be a world class model of integrating people with special needs through sports.
Motto “RUN TO BOND, RUN SO OTHERS CAN!” Background of how Runninghour was formed

Runninghour has been supported by Central Singapore Community Development Council (CDC) as a Healthy Lifestyle Club (HLC). The inclusive running club was formed since 18th of April 2009 by a group of fitness enthusiasts. They act as buddy runners to special members who are mildly intellectually challenged every Saturday morning. The members are mainly students and ex-students from APSN (Association for People with Special Needs) and CFA (Center for Adults).

Purpose of Runninghour

By and large the avenues for persons with special needs who are mildly intellectually challenged with IQ below 70 (the ordinary IQ level is above 100), to integrate into mainstream is very limited. We recognised that with limited resources, we need to be focus in our effort and approach in order to ensure that interest of persons with special needs as well as buddy runners are sustained and our objectives are achievable.

Key Objectives

Promote and provide support to persons with special needs in physical recreation i.e. mainly running. Provide opportunities for persons with special needs to interact with their peers, ordinary youth and adults to build bonds and enlarge their social networks.

Key Focus

Promote and nurture independence in participation in mainstream activities. Thus, we are only targeting at persons who are mildly intellectually challenged.
Recruiting members who enjoys physical activities and in particularly running. This will ensure sustainability and win-win for both special members and volunteers.

About Us ...

SASCO Ltd, then known as “The Singapore Urban Co-operative Union Ltd”, was established on 16 November 1933 by 12 thrift & loan Co-operative Societies to serve as a coordinating body.

Its objectives were to provide for a central organization to facilitate co-ordination, collaboration and dissemination of information amongst the growing number of co-operative societies then.

On 23 July 1954, its name was changed to the “Singapore Co-operative Union Ltd” and on May 1972, it was changed to the Singapore National Co-operative Union Ltd” (SNCU).

On 26 Feb 1982, the Singapore National Cooperative Federation Ltd” (SNCF) was setup as the apex organization for all Co-operatives societies. Thus the SNCU changed its name to “Singapore Amalgamated Services Co-operative Organisation Ltd” (SASCO Ltd).

SASCO Ltd then decided to change its role and took on community projects that would enhance the image of the members of the Cooperative movement in Singapore. Since then SASCO LTD became an affiliate to Singapore National Co-operative Federation Ltd (SNCF).

SASCO Ltd has taken on multiple community projects from Childcare Centre, Tuition Centre to Multi-Purpose Minimart and is moving forward to develop and evolve in line with their vision and mission. SASCO Ltd continues to extend its support greatly to SASCO Senior Citizens’ Home.

Moving Forward
SASCO Ltd has moved from strength to strength over the years. It is, yet, looking forward to many future projects beyond its current scope. Seven Hills Multi-Purpose Pte Ltd has opened talks to sign an agreement with the Thailand Co-Operative Society and is looking to sign further agreements with more trading partners in Southeast Asia countries.

SASCO’s childcare centres are planning to expand by one other centre in 2014. The multi-purpose minimart is also looking to develop another outlet in the Bukit Batok area in 2014. This is in addition to continuing our initiatives to render social and economic services to the community, similar to Bursary Awards.
