OVERVIEW

NUS Giving Run BIG is held annually to celebrate and recognise changemakers who have made positive impact in the lives of others.  This year’s run will take on a hybrid race format that allows both virtual and in person participation amongst runners of the NUS community and members of the public. The run will be conducted using the 42Race App. Participants are to download it to submit their running activity. 

The Run for 2022 will be a special one as 100% of the proceeds will go towards the NUS Annual Giving Bursaries. Your support will enable today’s students to become tomorrow’s changemakers, and inspire them to pay it forward to the community.
