Run to C.A.R.E is a virtual charity run organised by U Sports which aims to encourage all NTUC members, workers, and friends of the public, to run in support of over 15,000 beneficiaries from NTUC-U Care Fund.
Every $20 donation enables you to participate in the run. What can this amount do? You may ask. Now, every $20 can help a lower-income family purchase school stationery and books for their child.
Every $40 can help a lower-income family purchase a school bag and a pair of school shoes for their child.
Every additional $100 can help a lower-income worker purchase groceries and school-related necessities for their children and family.
A minimum donation of $20 enables you to participate in the Run. All proceeds raised from the event will go towards supporting over 15,000 beneficiaries across NTUC-U Care Fund’s 4 pillars:

The NTUC-U Care Fund is the charity arm of the Labour Movement that aims to better the welfare of lower-income union members and their families. Almost $8 million was raised in 2021 as part of the NTUC-U Care Fund, benefiting 35,000 lower-income union members and their families, which include 15,000 children! This is up from the $7.7 million raised in 2020.
The U Care Fund was established in 2009 to help union members affected by the economic downturn from the global financial crisis. Since then, $113 million has been disbursed to lower-income families, with the help of various unions, associations and social enterprises.
