About The Walk

Walk for Our Children is one of our signatory fundraising projects where we bring the community together to walk and participate in the carnival with their friends and family whilst raising funds for a worthy cause.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to adapt it into our first-ever Walk for Our Children (Virtual Edition). What we are having is an interactive website with mini-games, a virtual photobooth, customized Instagram filters, live feeding from social media and a live rainbow target of 20 million steps.

Take it up a notch by participating in our Step Booster Challenge i.e. set higher fitness goals (e.g. 20,000 steps daily for two weeks) and rally your friends and family to support your personal challenge by pledging a donation. Companies too can start an online crowdfunding campaign. If you are interested in this challenge, contact us here.

Funds raised from this event will continue to go towards supporting the programmes and services Singapore Children’s Society runs for the beneficiaries under our care.

We thank our sponsors for their kind and generous support!

Trail Walks

MacRitchie Reservoir

Singapore’s oldest and most popular nature park is a haven for joggers, families and weekend strollers. MacRitchie Trails around the reservoir offer easy boardwalk treks and ambitious hikes, ranging from 3 to 11 kilometres in length. Wildlife, from flying lemurs to tree frogs and pangolins, is abundant but rarely seen. Long-tailed macaque monkeys are more common. A highlight is the HSBC Treetop Walk, a suspension bridge positioned 25 metres above the forest floor, which connects the two highest points in the reserve and offers splendid panoramic views (currently closed for maintenance till May 2021). Depending on where you start, the round trip is 7 to 11 kilometres (about 3-5 hours walk) and graded in parts as ‘difficult’.

Heritage Walks

Jubilee Walk

The Jubilee Walk is an eight-kilometre trail that connects the past, present and future elements of the Singapore story, from ancient Temasek to the colonial era, to nationhood, rapid urban development and beyond. Encompassing historic and iconic areas such as Fort Canning Hill, the Singapore River, the Civic District and Marina Bay, the Walk offers a chance to discover the people and communities who have contributed to our cityscape. The draw of Singapore as a 14th century regional trading hub, the vision and toil of both colonial and immigrant pioneers, and the fiery days of “Merdeka” (freedom or independence in Malay) are just some of the stories waiting to be told here.
