NIE’s third annual charity event, NIE Director’s Race 2008,
was a roaring success as staff raised over S$60,000 for the
Singapore Children’s Society. Held on 22 August 2008, the
race saw a combination of talent, skills, power and grace
coming together for a good cause. The final amount raised
came up to about S$80,000.

Through the efforts of the NIE community, the NIE
Director’s Race continues to uphold its mission of
celebrating life by bringing hope and love to our children.
Asst Prof Clara Tan, Chairperson for the NIE Director’s
Race 2008 Organising Committee, said, "The NIE
Director’s Race is NIE’s unique way of giving back to the
community by involving the community. This year, more
than 1,000 runners and participants registered to support
this worthwhile project. To each of you, we express our
heartfelt thanks and appreciation."
In her acknowledgement, Ms Iris Tan, Executive, Fund
Raising from the Singapore Children’s Society thanked the
NIE community for the ‘sunshine’ that has come their way.
The first NIE Director’s Relay was held in 2006 where funds
raised went to the Singapore Heart Foundation. The 2007
charity event aided MINDS Jurong Gardens School.
"…Someone once said, ‘The best
among us are those who bring the
greatest benefits to others.’ To each
of you, please accept our thanks
and appreciation for coming out to
support this event that benefits
children and youths."
