1. What is FairPrice Walks with U?
FairPrice Walks with U is an annual mass walking event, organised by NTUC FairPrice. The event aims to bring multi-generational families and the community together, promote healthy and active lifestyles, and raise awareness for the less fortunate.

In line with the Walk n Groove theme, there will be live music and dance performances along the way and at the carnival to keep the rhythm going.
In addition, with every registered participant, FairPrice Foundation will donate $150 to help needy families through the FairPrice Food Voucher Scheme.
