Community Chest Heartstrings Walk is an annual community event organised by Community Chest and Marina Bay Sands, that rallies partners, volunteers, social service users and the community to build a nation that cares and shares.
This year, we are pleased to bring to you two 5KM virtual walks - Heartstrings Walk Anywhere and Heartstrings Walk Marina Bay.
With a donation of S$38, you may participate in Heartstrings Walk – Marina Bay - an engaging 5KM route around Marina Bay that delivers an interactive experience at five selected checkpoints. Alternatively, you may also take part in Heartstrings Walk – Anywhere with a donation of S$28, which allows you to complete the 5KM walk at any location of your choice.
