Yellow Ribbon Prison Run 2015

13 September 2015 - 13 September 2015

This year’s Yellow Ribbon Prison Run saw about 7,500 participants turn up to champion second chances for ex-offenders. Due to the haze, the 10km and 6km runs were combined and converted into a 6km walk. The walk took participants through historic sites such as the Johore Battery and Changi Chapel Museum, and ended in the Changi Prison Complex, where carnival festivities were held.

This year’s campaign tagline – ‘To you it’s pushing ahead. To them it’s not turning back.’ – encourages participants to ‘unlock’ the second gate for ex-offenders, and provide second chances for them to rebuild their life.

The atmosphere was energetic and heart-warming – the participants explored a heritage exhibition, enjoyed performances by the Philharmonic Winds and inmate performers, and participated in other carnival programmes. More than $85,000 was pledged for the Yellow Ribbon Fund at this run, which contributes towards the rehabilitation and reintegration programmes for ex-offenders, their families and children.
