24 Nov “Be a Runner, be a Fundraiser” with New Life Community Services
We believe in sport as a means to feel good and do good. In 2020, New Life Community Services joined us as the Official Charity Partner of Run as One Singapore with the goal of raising S$150,000 through an online fundraising campaign. We are extremely happy to share that, to date, they have raised over S$156,000! Furthermore, we also asked our Run As One Singapore participants to donate and the results were incredible. 127 participants chose to contribute, and a total of $2,715 was raised.
The funds raised will support New Life’s outreach and mentoring programmes within and outside the walls of its 3 youth drop-in centres. Here, youths in the community are given the opportunity to be mentored by youth mentors through activities and platforms such as sports, culinary, baking, arts, music, etc. In addition, the funds raised will also support New Life’s literacy programme ‘Steady Readers’ for children, as well as character mentoring programme ‘Kids Champ Club’ for children with behaviour issues.
In the words of participants Chin Meng Hwi and Wendy Tan from the team Sisters of The Hood “this charity run allows us to combine what we enjoy with helping New Life, so that more in the community can be blessed through them.”
Thank you to all of you for your contributions and your kindness. It is very inspiring to see the community come together.
