About this event

VIRTUAL RUN TO END VIOLENCE ON CAMPUS

Violence is impacting our campus communities in Singapore. According to a report in Parliament on 3 Nov 2020 by Minister of State of Education, Ms Sun Xueling, a total of 172 sexual misconduct cases in institutes of higher learning were handled by institutes of higher learning between 2015 to 2019. This translates into an incidence rate of 0.12 for every 1,000 staff and students.

We hope to change this.

Let Our Voice Run is a 3-year campaign that focuses on raising awareness and addressing sexual harm and dating violence experienced by young adults in tertiary institutions. This is through having conversations on building respectful relationships and safe campus communities through collective efforts with concerned stakeholders.

Let Our Voice Run was first launched in year 2020, where the focus was on raising awareness on violence through a relational approach, with a special focus on sexual violence. The 2020 campaign saw a total outreach to 1,687 individuals.

In 2021 and 2022, we hope to raise awareness through facilitated conversations on campus and build connectedness through listening to voices affected by violence, especially sexual violence.

Join us on 28 November 2021 for this virtual run in Singapore and help Lutheran Community Care Services raise funds to train passionate student leaders to facilitate restorative conversations on campus to strengthen communities.

You are warmly invited to also join our online awareness event on 27 Nov 2021 with Lindsey Ross and Lauren Bailey from Thrive Empowerment Centre. It's free for all to attend (more details at the bottom). If you are a survivor, you will find a safe space to be heard. If you are a concerned citizen, you will find tools and resources to help those affected by violence.

HOW IT WORKS

WHO: You! Everyone is invited to participate.

WHAT: Purchase a race entry for $25 ($15 for students) and add on a limited edition t-shirt for $15. Pledge your # of kilometres between 5km and 16km, and then complete them on race day. Let Our Voice Run is inclusive; participate at your own pace and you can choose to run, walk, bike, swim, or any other sport that accumulates distance.

RACE PACK: Your race pack, along with your limited edition t-shirt (if you added this), race badge, participation certificate and other goodies, will be available the week before our campaign starts. You will receive race pack info in your registration email. For overseas registrations, we unfortunately aren't able to post race packs but we will be emailing you an e-participation certificate and lots of gratitude for your support.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: If you want to have your race pack before the virtual run, please register by Wednesday, 17 November. You are welcome to register after 17 November and up until 6pm on 28 November. However, your race pack and t-shirts will only be available for pick up in the week after the virtual run. We'll email you with more info once you have registered.

WHERE: This is a virtual event. This means you complete your kilometres wherever you want while adhering to safe distancing measures. We will be sharing a variety of running routes in the lead up to the virtual run, so remember to leave your email address.

WHEN: On Sunday, 28 November 2021. Kilometres can be recorded up until 6pm. You are warmly invited to also join our awareness event on 27 November (info below).

HOW: After you register for the virtual run, you can start training. Follow us on IG at @letourvoicerun to get ideas from our community routemappers about places to run/walk/cycle! On Race Day, post your photos and videos to social media using the hashtags: #LetOurVoiceRun and tag us (@letourvoicerun)

WHY: Campus violence, especially sexual violence, are difficult issues to talk about and, because of this, people don't know how to get help and our communities are being impacted. We can change this but we need your support to do it. By joining the virtual run and campaign, you will directly help individuals and campus communities recover from violence and find ways to end it.
