About Race Organiser HiVelocity

HiVelocity started off as a small sports events agency with the dreams to inspire people to do sports. Through our journey at HiVelocity over the years, we have recognized the power of how sports can transform the lives of able-bodied people as well as physically challenged people AND how a physically challenged person doing sports can inspire and move the masses. To take our purpose of inspiring sports among the community, we have created Wheelathon360 together with our partners.

HiVelocity is a company built on the pure passion and love for sports. We do what we believe. We bring energy to everything we do. From our humble beginnings in 2005, HiVelocity has come a long way to becoming one of the top sports event management agencies in Singapore. Come 2011, we want to create a special event to challenge and inspire the community.

Wheelathon360 is this event.

The outcomes we seek

  1. Integration
    • For all individuals to be better understood and respected
    • Uniting through sharing

  2. A collaboration, through the breaking down of stereotypes, and the discovery of what we have in common and what we can do together

  3. Fundraising
