Ultra-marathoner to run for a good cause in Brazil

SINGAPORE: An ultra-marathon runner is going the distance again but this time to kill two birds with one stone. He's competing in the Brazil 135 UltraMarathon from 19 to 22 January, and raising funds for Beacon Primary School and MediaCorp Charity. Lim Nghee Huat hopes to inspire future runners, with his strength of body and mind. His run in Brazil will cover 217 kilometres and he has to complete the race in 60 hours. Half the proceeds raised from his run will be used to pay for computers for needy students, while the other half will go to MediaCorp Charity. Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong has also joined his cause, pledging S$2,170 (S$10 per km) to Beacon Primary School when Mr Lim accomplishes his mission and completes his run. Mr Lim said: "For ESM Goh, he has been very supportive. I think he just wanted me to continue to stay healthy and run for a good cause."
