What is the Good Start Run?
The Good Start SG movement spearheaded by Presbyterian Preschool Services (PPS) in 2022 was aimed at allowing as many children have a good start in life as possible. This includes children with developmental needs who are often left to their own devices or left behind.
Beyond having patient teachers who love working with children and are passionate about their jobs, these children often need targeted help from specialists who offer practical strategies. This comes at a cost. Hence, we are thankful that partners like Mr Lim Nghee Huat who have come alongside us in this journey to partner us in raising funds for these efforts to be realised on the ground.
2023's Good Start Run involves Uncle Nghee Huat running an ultra-marathon in Race Across Scotland on 12 August 2023. Having run for charity for many years, he believes in using his uperpower" of running to bless the community. He hopes to raise runs for PPS' Educational Support Programme so that more children with developmental needs who struggle in mainstream preschools will be able to learn, grow and glow alongside their peers.
