SINGAPORE - Food is what binds this four-generation family of 44 members together.

On weekends or festive events like Chinese New Year, they gather at a four-room Bedok Reservoir View flat to visit their "Ah Gong", 83-year-old Goh Ah Ong.

But next Sunday, the family will attempt something different.

They will don sports shoes and a specially-printed family T-shirt for the POSB PAssion Run for Kids 2013.

Thirteen of them will take part in the 10km category, while 22 will take part in the 3.5km Family Walk category.

The rest are unable to make it due to work and school commitments.

It all started when a few of the thirdgeneration members had the idea of doing a run together during their Father's Day celebration in June.

Mr A.K. Goh, 49, then convinced the others that it should be a family event.
