Mettle Challenge - a fitness for good charity movement started in 2017 by Singapore Children’s Society to raise funds for the disadvantaged youth in the community. It is a movement where platforms are created to raise funds to support the disadvantaged youth in the community. These youth typically come from the lower income families and more than often are caught in trans-generational poverty, with little opportunities given to break out of that cycle. Our objective is to not only raise funds to support developmental programs of the 4 youth centers of Singapore Children's Society - but also to create opportunities for these youth to be positively connected to a larger community. #ChallengeForTheirDreams is the ongoing theme for the movement - because every challenge that participants do goes directly into helping these youth inch closer to their dreams.
Mettle Challenge has traditionally been organizing physical CrossFit styled events since 2017, but ever since the global pandemic struck in 2020, plans for a physical event has been derailed. With the need to continuously reach out to the community, Mettle Challenge has taken its direction into the virtual space, starting with a virtual race to reach out to the running community in Singapore.
#LEADTHERACE Virtual Race is a leaderboard based virtual race that will go on for the month of November that will see participants race each other to see who can cover the most distance in one month. The unique point of this race unlike other virtual races is that there is no set distance or limit for participants, and individuals will attempt to outrun themselves or others with hopes to clinch the top 3 spots on the leaderboard.
Registration fee is $35 for a single entry into the race and optional $10 to add on a finisher's t-shirt. All registration fees collected will go directly to Singapore Children's Society in supporting their youth-at-risk developmental programs. Your participation can help push our cause further and help create a larger impact for those disadvantaged young people.
Runner’s entitlements include a pre-race T-shirt, post-race medal, and a post-race finisher’s t-shirt (Optional).
Prizes for top 3 spots are Garmin Fenix 6S (1st Placing), Garmin Vivoactive 4 (2nd Placing) & Apple AirPods Pro (3rd Placing).
1) With each registration fee going directly to Singapore Children’s Society, the objective is to encourage as many sign-ups as possible to the race so that more funds can be raised for the disadvantaged young people in the community.
2) To spread the message of using individual fitness for a good cause – that every individual has the power to use their movements or sports to do good for someone else, especially in this pandemic.
