We believe everyone deserves a decent place to live, so everyone who contributes to this meaningful cause plays a role in building hope, dignity and self-reliance in the community. We look forward to seeing everyone at the start line in May!”
Kristoffer Harvey, CEO of Goodman Group Greater China said: “After three years, it’s fantastic to be hosting the Goodman Magic Mile again – this time at our latest development, Goodman Westlink.
