December is a month filled with thanksgiving as we wind down to the close of the year. With Christmas around the corner, it is a time for us to reflect and spend more time with the family.
With that family-centric thought in mind, here are six events that we think you can explore with your family!
Sports and Outdoor Activities
Work Great on A Great Street
What’s a better family bonding activity than some fun-filled fitness and sports event? The Work Great on A Great Street is an event organised for everyone to work out together in the great outdoors. Held at Orchard Road, this event has everything from Zumba, Yoga, Pilates to Circuit Training, K-Kardio and much more. While it is initially organised for the office workers in the Orchard Road community, families looking for some fun are joining in too. There is also health screening, health-related workshops and talks during this event, so it is an excellent chance for the family to get together for some healthy activities.
When: Now until 31 December 2017
Where: Orchard Road Area
Indulge your children in some fun with Santa Run. Held every year during December, this event is organised by Make A Wish Singapore. The proceeds of the run go to Make-A-Wish Foundation Singapore to help grant wishes of children with life-threatening illness. This event is a meaningful one where you can show your children how to care for others through actions. It is also a fun bonding activity for the family.
