Singapore, 5 September 2003 – Bring out the wild side in you and join us at The New Paper Big Walk 2003 (TNP Big Walk 2003) this Sunday, 7 September 2003!


StarHub is the official tee-shirt sponsor for the third consecutive year and this year, participants will be surrounded by over 83,000 tee-shirts depicting StarHub’s ever popular Sparky (for StarHub Mobile) and Penguin (for StarHub CableTV) icons.


StarHub will also go the distance for the participants at the TNP Big Walk 2003 with various exciting activities and contests* in store for them!

  • Be Steve Irwin for the day!

Come to StarHub’s booth dressed as Animal Planet’s famous Australian adventurer, Steve Irwin. The best wrestler of "snapping crocodiles" and "venomous snakes" will stand a chance to win a trip to Brisbane, plus a tour of the Brisbane zoo! The first 100 Steve Irwin look-alikes at StarHub’s booth will also receive an exclusive StarHub and Animal Planet goodie bag worth S$100.

  • Doggie treats for your dog!

We’re not forgetting Sparky’s paw friends too! The first 100 dog owners to show up at StarHub’s booth with their dogs will be rewarded with special doggie treats. Another 100 doggie treats await dogs who complete half the distance at the 5km mid-point route.

  • Find Out Where Sparky Went!

Be the one to solve Singapore’s greatest roaming mystery! Sparky is StarHub Mobile’s mascot for mobile network coverage and is easily recognized by his collar that says – "Mobile coverage. Home or abroad, there's no place we won't go." Sparky has been roaming all over Singapore, the United Kingdom, China, Italy and India, and he’s still on the loose! Find out where Sparky has roamed to and stand to win a travel voucher worth S$500! All participants have to do is to look out for the answers along the first 5 km of the Big Walk route and send them via SMS to 9022 0010. The contest is open to StarHub, SingTel and M1 pre-paid and post-paid mobile customers.

  • Exclusive StarHub Goodies

Participants will also receive an exclusive StarHub CableTV cushion when they subscribe for StarHub CableTV at StarHub’s booth.


In addition, some 500 StarHub’s employees together with their family and friends will also lend their support and feet to the Big Walk. Decked in the StarHub-sponsored Sparky and Penguin tee-shirts, they will also be marching as a contingent, wearing StarHub caps and each holding a helium filled StarHub balloon as well! What a sight it will be!


The flagoff time is at 7.30am, so bring along your doggie, dress up as Steve Irwin and join the fun!
