Last year’s event had approximately 5,000 participants walking barefoot for the cause, and had raised more than S$300,000. Bare Your Sole 2014 aims to register more than 6,000 participants this year and to raise S$500,000. Funds raised will benefit Habitat for Humanity Singapore’s local programme Project HomeWorks, an initiative designed to improve the living conditions of the elderly, the sick and the physically challenged living in one-room flats across the nation.

Besides walking barefoot for a good cause, Bare Your Sole 2014 promises to be a fun-filled family event, with food stations by popular eating destinations, such as Dean & Deluca and Cold Stone Creamery. A variety of activities for children, including roving performances by stilt walkers, percussionists and balloon sculptors, will entertain the young and the young at heart. Participants can also stand to win attractive prizes at a raffle draw open to all.
