SJI and LFS launched the event also as part of Shell’s commitment to achieve 125 volunteering hours for #ShellSG125. Starting from 7am to around 11am, cyclists pedaled from Road Safety Community Park in East Coast to Gardens by the Bay and back, totaling 15km. The cyclists were glad to contribute to the cause. For example, Christine Lim, Senior Legal Counsel and also one of the cyclists from Shell, garnered sponsors from her colleagues for the cycle as donation. Her 10-year-old son even insisted on sponsoring $1 for every 5km she cycled.
SJI Project Services and Integration Manager Ernest Yue, who was one of the organisers behind the event, said, “It took ten months of dedicated planning for today’s event. I am glad to see this turnout and support from our colleagues, and I hope we can work towards more of such projects in future.”
Shell senior leaders were also present to lend their support. Goh Swee Chen, Chairman of Shell Companies in Singapore flagged off the event alongside and Guest-of-Honour Ang Wei Neng, Member of Parliament (MP), Jurong GRC, while Stephen Fowler, General Manager (GM) of SJI, and Mark Gainsborough, Executive Vice President, Shell Global Commercial, joined in the fun as cyclists.
