Celebrating Singapore’s 52nd National Day through sport, GetActive! Singapore is bringing back the Active Enabler Programme for employers (and other groups such as schools) to submit their proposals for sport-focused activities to be conducted from 29 July to 9 August 2017.
The proposals could be supported through provision of fitness instructors to conduct group fitness sessions, project grants of up to S$25,000 per project with more than 30 participants, and mass event grants of up to S$50,000 for mass events targeting more than 200 participants. Last year, in the first edition of GetActive! Singapore, the programme supported more than 240 applications.
Head of GetActive! Singapore operations, Lai Chin Kwang, commented: “We hope that the Active Enabler Programme will be the catalyst for people to come forward and exercise their creative juices in getting Singaporeans active during this National Day period.”
RED-X Games and Strong Mind Fit Body are among organisations that have submitted their proposals to be back again this year.
Managing director of Superfit, founder of RED-X Games, Steffan Fung explained: “Our event is inspired by national events and milestones like National Service, growing-up games, and back breaking work carried out by our forefathers.”
Shereen Ng, director of Strong Mind Fit Body, added: “We hope to work with students and provide them the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of Singapore’s aging population and to showcase of the livelihood of common jobs taken by our pioneer generations.”
In 2016, the Active Enabler Programme provided platforms for over 95,000 people to participate. This year’s programme submission deadline has been extended till 19th May 2017. Successful applicants will be informed by early June 2017.
