Get your running shoes ready, folks! The NTUC Income Run 350, Organised by Young NTUC, is happening on Sunday, 27th April 2014! The 21-km half-marathon has been fully subscribed but slots for the 10km run are still available!
Our earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide level is currently close to 400 parts per million. If this continues, tipping points will be triggered and irreversible impacts will send climate change spinning truly beyond our control. NTUC Income RUN 350, Organised by Young NTUC is Southeast Asia’s premier eco-run in support of the global 350 movement. The movement serves to raise awareness of the need to lower atmospheric carbon dioxide level to 350 parts per million and to create a greater sense to urgency in meeting the challenge of the climate crisis facing our planet today.
This year, RUN 350 introduced its inaugural Medal Recycling Campaign where the public is encouraged to donate their old medals and contribute to the recycling effort. The collected medals will be processed and used as part of the raw materials in the production of new medals. The more medals collected, the greater the reduction of new materials being used. Medal collection points are located islandwide until 28 February 2014.
I have just two medals at home, as I am a new runner, but if you have many medals at home just collecting dust, why not recycle them? 🙂
