Unlabelled Movement

Labelling others is common in any society.

But people who are unfairly labelled can suffer from being stigmatised,

discriminated against and even sacrificed as scapegoats. In 2016, The New Charis Mission (TNCM)

started the “Unlabelled Run”, a 5-km and 10-km competitive run.

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 seek the creation of a greater awareness

of unlabelling via the Unlabelled Movement.

Join us in the Unlabelled Run 2023!

Support our advocacy to unlabel so as to create greater awareness

on removal of negative labels, and build synergies to serve the community.


Advocate the message of unlabelling among all, especially amongst the young

Every individual in this country counts, regardless of their 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 rights

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. 


Affirm those who were once being labelled but are now contributing in ways big or small. 

We celebrate the unique contribution of each individual and the collaboration of all. We believe that there is strength and stability when a community is united. We seek to show to share and care especially with those who are culturally and socially different from them. 

"It's not how we start, but how we finish the race that matters”

Following the first 4 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 Ms Denise Phua, Minister Desmond Lee, Minister Grace Fu and Speaker Tan Chuan-Jin.
