According to Danial, his first run with AR-SG was in September 2017.[30] Between 2018 and 2019, Danial participated in at least four runs that were organised by Adidas.

"Run To Rise" (May 2018)[edit | edit source]

In May 2018, Danial was involved in "Run To Rise", a running event meant to inspire people to adopt transformative life routines. Danial and other participants from the Adidas Runners Singapore (AR-SG) group ran from Suntec City to Marina Barrage, where they caught the sunrise.[31]

Other endeavours[edit | edit source]

Co-founder of Beef Bro (2017 - 2018)[edit | edit source]

In 2017, Danial co-founded Beef Bro with the local entrepreneur, Norvan Tan. The pair met when Danial was the brand ambassador for Norvan’s customisable slipper business, Blackout.[36] Beef Bro sells premium blow-torched beef cubes served with a variety of dipping sauces and toppings. While Norvan handled the overall operations, Danial took charge of the business' branding and marketing. Beef Bro made its physical debut at the Ramadan Bazaar in May 2018.[37] Danial is quoted to have said the following to a reporter in 2018:

“When we started this business we were sceptical about the response that we will get. At first, we prepared about 30 to 40 kilos of beef every day. But the response has been [so] overwhelming [that] we increased our beef [supply] to about 100 kilos every day. We expect to go all the way to 200 kilos on the weekend, or maybe more.”[38]

However, in mid-2018, Danial reportedly left Beef Bro to dedicate more time to his family and acting.[36][37]
