Participants setting off at the start of the 5km mass run of the 2016 SGX Bull Charge Charity Run last Friday. Bull Charge, the Singapore Exchange's flagship charity programme, has raised more than $2.6 million this year. Its grand finale - the annual charity run - saw more than 5,000 participants taking part in the 5km mass run. The event, now in its 13th year, was flagged off from The Float @ Marina Bay by Senior Minister of State for Finance and Law Indranee Rajah. The charity run followed a golf tournament and futsal event that took place earlier this year. All proceeds go towards four charities: the Asian Women's Welfare Association, the Autism Association (Singapore), Fei Yue Community Services and Shared Services for Charities. Bull Charge has raised more than $29 million for more than 50 different charities over the past 13 years.
