On 7 July 2018, 27 participants aged between 18 and 35 came together to compete in the race, yet to a larger context, to deepen their understanding of racial diversity in Singapore.
The Harmony Race, modelled after the famous Amazing Race format, created an opportunity for experiential learning and facilitates cross-cultural understanding and interaction between people from all racial and religious backgrounds.
