On 16 May 2015, a team of employees from DEME’s DIAP-SHAP JV Singapore created their own legacy by running the Great Wall Marathon. Runners had to run, climb up to the hill tops and conquer 5,164 staircase steps at The Great of Wall of China in Beijing. Together they ran a total of 1,000km with the heart and mind of raising funds for The Red Pencil. Breathless as they were at the end of the marathon, it was a meaningful once-in-a-lifetime experience for them.
DEME’s DIAP-SHAP JV will continue to run for the red pencil during the year 2016 for more upcoming runs.
The Red Pencil is deeply grateful to DEME for their heartfelt and innovative efforts in fundraising !
