Bare Your Sole 2015

Friday, 3 April 2015

Do you know that in many countries there are people who do not own a pair of shoes? Even if they have a pair of shoes, they will not bear to wear it everyday lest the shoes get spoil. Most of the time, they are walking around barefooted. Their road paves might not be in the best conditions: muddy, dirty and dangerous.

In Singapore, we are blessed that almost everyone has their own pair of shoes. For the more fortunate, they could have many pairs of shoes. Furthermore, our road and pavement conditions are so much better and we do not have to worry about getting hurt if we are really walking barefooted.

Bare Your Sole is an annual charity walkathon organised by Habitat for Humanity Singapore. It strives to bring together people to raise awareness for the plight of a large number of people living in poverty. Funds raised from the walkathon supports Habitat for Humanity Singapore’s Project HomeWorks programme, which is aimed at improving the living conditions of the elderly, the sick and the physically challenged living in one-room flats in Singapore. Since the inception of Project HomeWorks in 2006, Habitat for Humanity Singapore has been able to engage close to 7,000 volunteers to assist disadvantaged Singaporeans in refurbishing over 1,000 of their homes.

Last year, more than 5,000 participants turned up to show their support and over S$300,000 was raised from the event.

Bare Your Sole 2015 is back again for its 7th year. It will be happening on 30 May 2015, Saturday, at Palawan Beach, Sentosa.


Aside from the walkathon, Bare Your Sole 2015 will feature a wide range of activities such as a high elements course with flying fox and rock-climbing wall, a Habitat Village and a Kids’ Corner. There will be entertaining martial arts demonstrations and musical performances, promising to be a fun-filled family event for all ages. Participants can also look forward to an array of tasty food and beverage options.

Kick off your shoes and walk barefoot for a worthy cause.
