Do you sometimes feel that your home is a zoo? I do. Especially when the kids laze around like the sleepy lions in the zoo when it is homework time, laugh like hyenas when you need to be on a conference call for work or bicker like monkeys over the same toys or other nonsensical stuff.
So when I heard that the Safari Zoo Run is back, I signed us up for it. Not only is this a fun family run that will get us out of the house training for it, it is also a great way to bond as a family. Over the last few years, we had participated in quite a few family runs – Justice League Run, the NTUC 360 Run and most recently the SpongeBob Run. Because the kids are at the “tween” age where they are more active and particular, we choose runs with FUN themes that resonate with them and will also motivate them to participate. The Safari Zoo Run fits this bill well.
The Safari Zoo Run was conceived to commemorate Singapore Zoo’s famous matriarch and one of Singapore’s most loved animal personalities — Ah Meng the Sumatran orangutan, who died of old age in February 2008. Plus, this year’s theme is focused on raising awareness on wildlife conservation, so it’s a science and physical education rolled into a morning run. AND the bonus is that the kids get to stay in the zoo after!

Join a team and run for wildlife today!
The run’s theme, “Run for Wildlife” focuses on raising awareness for wildlife conservation. Each animal icon team supports an endangered wildlife species that we would like to raise awareness for. Look out for these FOUR (4) animal icons at the Safari Zoo Run 2017! They are Ah Meng the Orangutan, Chawang the Asian Elephant, Canola the Manatee and Sunny the Hornbill.
