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.
