tâ€™s the Amazing Race with a twist. Twenty-six teams, each comprising of three cars, competed to locate checkpoints scattered around the island. Twenty stations within three hours was definitely a race against time. The stations came in a variety of locations and settings. At Care Community Services Society, teams learnt the value of honor when they made a card for their carecell leaders as a show of appreciation for people in authority. Those at the Pasir Ris Prawn Farm attracted curious onlookers when they tried to fish out as many prawns as they could to earn bonus points. Caught between time crunch and scoring, patience was a hard lesson for many.
Over at the Marina Bay Golf Course, the value of strategic leadership was demonstrated as team members guided their teammates to form various shapes using hand-held strings. Unity was displayed at Bishan Park as participants were challenged to walk on a stony path as a team. It was a painful experience to remember. At West Coast Park, teams learnt the value of faith as participants, handicapped by foam goggles, had to navigate their way on wooden structures aided by their teammates. The day was capped with a time of sharing in small groups, as participants reflected on which station impacted them and how they could apply the values they had learnt in their daily lives. Kudos to the organizing committee for the massive coordinated effort!
On Oct 30, 315 young adults scooted around the sunny isle of Singapore in 76 cars during the Young Adults (YA) Car Rally. This was a race that not only fostered closer relationships, it also provided food for thought. By Chen Xiufang
