More than 4,000 runners from 116 organisations across the aviation community in Singapore participated in the Aviation Run organised by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations.

With the generous support of the organisations and individuals, the Aviation Run, which was held on Saturday, raised Sin$218,000 for the Community Chest.

The Aviation Run also sought to foster closer ties among members of the aviation community. The high turnout and benevolent contributions by the community exemplified the strong spirit of partnership and camaraderie within the community.

Leaders and senior executives from the aviation organisations ran alongside Mr Raymond Lim, Minister for Transport and Second Minister for Foreign Affairs, who was the Guest-of-Honour at the event, in a special run.

Mr Yap Ong Heng, Director-General of CAAS, said, The impressive turnout by the aviation community at the Aviation Run and its contribution to the Community Chest reflects the commitment of the community to work together to help the less fortunate. The event is also a celebration of the aviation industry in Singapore. Despite the economic downturn and the impact on the industry, the industry is a robust one and will grow even stronger in the years to come.
