'Cat' woman leads race for donations for Yellow Ribbon Prison Run

Published on Sep 17, 2012 6:00 AM

A cat suit is hardly the type of gear to run a marathon. But this was what Madam Jenap Said wore on Sunday.

And it was not just for laughs: The 53-year-old finished 60km in 12 hours and raised nearly $120,000 in donations.

Her feat was the curtain-raiser for the annual Yellow Ribbon Prison Run on Sunday. More than 10,000 people took part in the race, split into 10km and 6km distances.

Held at Changi yearly since 2009, the event is aimed at raising awareness about former offenders to help them reintegrate into society.
