ISCOS runners participate in Yellow Ribbon Run

RUNFREE Club runners which comprised ISCOS members and volunteers participated in the Yellow Ribbon Run on 16 September. They also joined the last leg in the pre-event run with Madam Jenap Said, or “Catwoman”, in an effort to raise public awareness. The run culminated at Changi Prison, which saw some 10,000 runners taking part in it.

The Yellow Ribbon Run is an event organised by the Community Action for the Rehabilitation of Ex-offenders (CARE) Network, and is supported by ISCOS. It serves as a platform for ISCOS members and volunteers to help rally community support and acceptance for ex-offenders.

FUNtastic Race brings families closer

ISCOS collaborated with Our Giving Hearts (OGH), a local volunteer group, to organise a family bonding activity at Gardens by the Bay on 3 November.

Dubbed the “FUNtastic Race”, the event aimed at fostering relationships within the family of ISCOS members. A total of 17 families enjoyed a fulfilling weekend, thanks to the efforts of OGH volunteers.

“We are glad that OGH was given a chance to work with ISCOS on this Family Bonding activity. It was a great experience for us and all our volunteers, especially seeing all the participants working very hard together as a family to compete in the games. This is really a good way for participants to bond as a family.” said Mr Kavin Ang, one of the founding members of Our Giving Hearts.
