The Nanyang MBA participated in the Yellow Ribbon Prison Run held on 14 Sep 2014. Students and alumni have been highly encouraged to join this event, and we have been a regular participant for the past few years.
The run started at the SAF Open Field near Changi Village and ended at the Changi Prison Complex. There were two categories, namely the 10km Competitive Run and the 6km Fun Run. We proudly participated in the run in our Nanyang MBA t-shirts.
At the finishing point, a carnival was set up and we enjoyed several activities such as performances by inmates, foot massage, photo-taking and there was even a selfie challenge.
The Yellow Ribbon Prison Run aims to create awareness of giving second chance to ex-offenders, to generate acceptance of them into the community and to support their rehabilitation and re-integration into the community. The theme for this year’s run is “The Road to Acceptance”. For more information, visit their website here. You can also read about the news coverage here.
