Where is the fun in running alone when you can run together with your son or daughter and parents all at once? If this isn’t something you’ve tried before, perhaps you should register you and your family for the 3GEN Family Chase, a new category and one of 14 at the Cold Storage Kids Run 2013.

Singapore’s marquee running event for children returns this year on 19 May 2013, and will be held at the Padang. The non-competitive 3GEN Family Chase will allow kids to run or walk in tow with their parents and grandparents over a distance of 800 metres together. To participate, any child aged 7-12 just needs to team up with their parent and grandparent.

Speaking at the launch and roadshow of the event at Novena Square over the weekend, DJ/presenter Jamie Yeo said, “The new 3GEN Family Chase category creates more opportunities for young children to bond with their grandparents and parents. With an increasing demand on our time, this is a fun event to take the entire family to.”

Apart from the launch of a new category, this year’s Cold Storage Kids Run is also looking to drive awareness for underprivileged kids in developing countries by embarking on a ‘Pledge-A-Shoe’ project, in the hope of raising funds to help children protect their feet by providing them with new shoes. All funds raised through the event will be donated to Caring for Cambodia Fund Singapore, a locally registered charity.

Those who wish to register their child can do so online, with registration closing on 10 April 2013 or when the maximum number of 5,000 participants is reached.
