Event: STEPS in the Park by EmancipAsia

STEPS in the Park, is a 5km run/walk organised by EmancipAsia with the aim of enabling people to ‘take their first step’ toward understanding modern-day slavery and human trafficking.

This ​year’s ​inaugural ​event ​has ​been ​named ​‘STEPS ​in ​the ​Park’ ​as ​a ​nod ​to ​its ​venue ​at ​Gardens ​by ​the ​Bay. ​At ​this ​annual ​event, ​you ​will ​have ​the ​opportunity ​to ​meet ​like-minded ​people ​who ​are ​there ​to ​find ​out ​more, ​as ​well ​as ​those ​who ​already ​support ​our ​cause.

Mrs Sylvia Lee, Founder and Director of EmancipAsia said, “We are very excited to be partnering the Singapore Inter-Agency Taskforce on Trafficking in Persons, to bring this event and cause to the attention of people in Singapore. Many are unaware of how attractive Singapore is to traffickers as a destination country, given its connectivity, and ease of entry for visitors from ASEAN countries”.

Proceeds ​from ​the ​event ​will ​go ​toward ​funding ​EmancipAsia’s ​work ​to ​raising ​awareness, ​advocating ​change ​and ​empowering ​communities, ​businesses ​and ​individuals ​to ​take ​action ​to ​combat ​human ​trafficking.

Well I wouldn’t be in town during that period.
But I hope those who are interested in helping the cause and have a morning walk/run with many others, could register before 8 November and receive an event tee as a memento.
