Labelling others is common in society.
But the individuals who are unfairly labelled can experience negative consequences such as stigmatization and discrimination. To raise awareness about the harm of these labels, in 2016, The New Charis Mission (TNCM) initiated the “Unlabelled Run”, a 5km fun run and 10km competitive run, to advocate the removal of these harmful labels.
More than just a run, it is a clarion call to Singaporeans that we must unite to build an inclusive, cohesive, and compassionate society.
That is why Unlabelled Run advocates the removal of prejudicial labels in our society. The New Charis Mission seeks the creation of a greater awareness of unlabelling via the Unlabelled Movement.
ADVOCATE the message of unlabelling
among all, especially amongst the youth
Every individual in this country matters, regardless of age, gender, race, language, and religion. Every person’s innate potential is limitless. Negative labelling can stifle and snuff out that potential.
ASPIRE to be a significant
contributor in his or her own right
Every ‘labelled’ individual, with sufficient support and encouragement, can aspire to be a significant contributor in society. We encourage ‘labelled’ individuals to be resilient and shake off the labels stuck onto them by others.
IT'S NOT HOW WE START, BUT HOW WE FINISH THE RACE THAT MATTERS
Following the five editions, Unlabelled Run has evolved into the Unlabelled Movement to strongly carry forth the message that labels do not matter, but people do.
The Unlabelled Movement advocates that “Lives Impact Lives” where every member of society has strengths that play a part in building our society. We are grateful that this cause has been supported by Mayor Denise Phua, Minister Desmond Lee, Minister Grace Fu,
Minister Ong Ye Kung and Former Speaker of the Parliament of Singapore Tan Chuan-Jin.
