Amy Khor joins Gojek & RSVP Singapore in Chipsley’s Virtual Run

Gojek Singapore started the new year on an active note! On 2 Jan, a group of us participated in Chipsley’s Virtual Run, where we ran 5 kilometres to champion a Gojek driver-partner’s passion project, and at the same time, support an organisation to train seniors in digital skills.

Amy Khor, Senior Minister of State in the Ministry of Transport, graced the occasion and sportingly completed the run with a group that comprised Benny Tay, Gojek driver-partner and creator of cartoon seal character Chipsley; Koh Juay Meng, chairman of non-profit organisation RSVP Singapore; and Lien Choong Luen, general manager of Gojek Singapore.

It might have been a rainy and sleepy morning, but spirits were high. After the run around the 100PLUS Promenade – Singapore's largest fully-sheltered, free-to-use space that encircles the National Stadium –, Benny presented the group with a Chipsley t-shirt and cert. 

Last November, Gojek Singapore partnered with Chipsley’s Virtual Run as part of our second anniversary celebrations, where Gojek employees, drivers, and customers partook in the run to stay active together, in a safe and responsible manner. It’s also our way of supporting our driver-partners’ side endeavours or passions, while they leverage our platform for supplemental earnings. This speaks to the key benefits offered by ride-hailing: flexibility and a means to supplement their other interests, be it studies, sports or starting their own business.

Moreover, we are donating $1 to RSVP Singapore for every kilometer clocked by a Gojek participant in the run, to support the empowerment of seniors as volunteers and improve the digital literacy of seniors in the community. It’s our goal to provide the elderly with easier access to ride-hailing, as it offers a safer and more comfortable point-to-point transport solution, compared to the more communal modes of transport. 

We are excited about the new year and look forward to initiatives that will further delight our users. 

Here’s wishing all our driver-partners, customers and partners a fantastic 2021!
