What do I get for my $20 registration fee?

Why are there no physical goodie bags?
This year’s Big Walk is held in conjunction with the Singapore Environment Council’s Singapore G1 2012 event, which promotes green and healthy living. In line with the environmental theme, no plastic bags will be given out.
Where does it begin and end?
The walk begins at The Central, above Clarke Quay MRT Station, and ends with a carnival at the Marina Barrage.
How long is the route?
Will Big Walkers be walking together with the Singapore G1 walkathon participants?
No. Big Walkers will take a separate route from The Central and walk along the Singapore River towards the Marina Barrage. You will join the Singapore G1 participants only at the green carnival held at the Marina Barrage.
How will I be contributing to a social cause by joining the Big Walk?
Part of the proceeds from the event will go towards Project Helping Hands, a partnership between Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Lions Befrienders Service Association and The New Paper. The project aims to install wireless motion sensors in the homes of elderly people who live alone.
What should I wear to the Big Walk?
Every participant can claim a Denizen T-shirt. Wear this T-shirt to take part in exclusive lucky draws and games along the route and at the carnival.
