This morning, we participated in the 5km The MAD race (Make a Difference, organised by Touch) at Sentosa.

Any day with psi less than 100 is a good day, Olaf greeted us on the beach and she is not melting.

All dressed in yellow, runners and walkers are participating in the MAD Race today, to increase awareness for depression.

Nevermind if we are not the fastest, we try our best.
More importantly, run together and enjoy the day as a family 🙂

We have to encourage Boon Xin to keep up, as she still lacks stamina to complete the 5km. Her style is sprint, pant, walk, repeat again haha.

This race has another feature. We need to collect all seven bands to form a rainbow.

The volunteers were always eager to give her more Hi5, they even gave her extra bands for her efforts 🙂

Remember to have some photo mementos. We seldom explore this side of Sentosa, Palawan Beach.

I shared with the kids MAD race is not for mad people. Some folks suffer from depression and understand very little about treatments and social stigma. Our MAD Race today hopes to make a difference and hopefully raise some awareness about mental health.
