NTU Fest 2015 5ynergy Run
The 5ynergy Run rasied sufficient funds to kick-start NTU Sea Lions, a multi-year programme in partnership with SportCares that aims to promote character development to underprivileged children and youth through sports. Apart from instilling confidence and teaching critical life skills to the participants, the long term vision of this programme is to expose them to positive paths that they may not otherwise have access to, and lift them out of the social risk cycle.
Aside from the formal coaching by accredited instructors, student volunteers also serve as befrienders and mentors to programme participants.
100% of the run registration fees have been channelled to this programme, thank you for your support!

NTU Fest 2014 - Seeing Beyond Yourself
The mega one-day event was held at the Padang on 16 August 2014 and included a carnival, charity run and free concert headlined by Korean stars Kang Gary and Jung-In. It was the biggest event the NTU Students’ Union has ever organised, and marked the highlight of the NTU Freshmen Welcome Week.
Proceeds from the sale of carnival coupons for use at the 55 booths, and the $10 registration fees for the 5TYLO MILE-O fun run were channelled towards the ITE Endowment Fund which provides financial assistance to needy ITE students.
The carnival booths run by NTU and ITE students featured a variety of cuisines, games and fun activities for all ages. NTU and ITE students also showcased their creativity, dynamism and energy on stage earlier in the day.
