Racing for Red Tab in Singapore

Last month, more than 100 LS&Co. colleagues, friends, and family members participated in the Race for Red Tab in Singapore. The race is all about raising awareness — and funds — for the Red Tab Foundation. This year’s event involved teams competing in a 2-hour challenging adventure race. As you can see by the pictures, racers were up for the challenge!

Well, the results are in, and the team raised a whopping $36,900 — the most ever raised for Race for Red Tab event. Singapore employees showed their support with more than 83 percent making a donation. If you like to support the event, there’s still time! To make a contribution, click here.

So what drove such a stellar fundraising effort? It might be the intense competition among teams representing each regional cluster. Teams inspired each other and elevated the way we relate to our company.  The website saw a flurry of donations just before the race in a bid to be the top fundraising team. There were also a series of fundraising activities in the weeks leading up to the race, including a customized Trucker event and ecommerce sample sales.

When it came to race day, competition was intense, with the ASEA team being awarded overall champions. The top individual fundraiser was the Regional Head of Security, raising $6,289 from 60 donors. What an effort!

We have been blown away by the generosity of colleagues across the region and the globe, as well as friends and families of the racers. Thank you to all of our fundraisers for spreading the word and asking for donations, and a big thanks to everyone who made a donation to Race for Red Tab.

It’s our collective compassion and shared values that will positively impact our employees and retirees. This is how we help each other.
