Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Nov 2021, 11:59 PM

Last year, we went on a "A Million Steps for the Last, the Lost and the Least" under the Million Steps campaign by Lakeside Family Services with the objective of raising funds for rehabilitating ex-prisoners and their families.

We walked 40 km from Lakeside in Yung Ho Road to Changi Chapel & Museum. Frankly, it was tough. We wanted to give up even before the midpoint. But we pressed on and eventually completed the distance in 12 hours.

This year, we will take part in Lakeside's 4ward Together 4 Million Steps campaign because we want to continue our contribution from our previous efforts.

But this time round, we will take on the challenge of an overnight walk with the main group, starting from the evening of 26 Nov and arriving at Changi Chapel & Museum at sunrise.

We hope that you will cheer us on by donating to this worthy cause. Every cent counts, and we are grateful for your help.

About Campaign

Lakeside Family Services launched its first #AMillionSteps fundraising campaign in 2020, targeting to reach 1 million steps together to raise funds for our programmes serving (ex-)inmates and their families.

This year, we hope to continue supporting them in their journey to reintegration. Together with all our staff, volunteers and friends of Lakeside, we are committed to pledge 1,000 steps for each of the 4,000 (ex-)inmates we work with.

In the spirit of going the distance together, our campaign this year is titled 4ward Together 4 Million Steps. Together with all our staff, volunteers and friends of Lakeside, we hope to walk 4 Million Steps and raise $300,000.

Lakeside provides a wide range of services, including:

1. Family Resource Centre, a one-stop centre for inmates and their families

2. Case Management Support for inmates on the Work Release Scheme

3. Life skills workshops through our Release Preparation Programme

4. Televisit services for families to visit their loved ones in prison through our teleconferencing facility

5. Holistic programmes for financial assistance, family bonding, and casework support after release

Clock your steps with us and invite your friends and family to support your walk! For more info, visit https://www.lakeside.org.sg/support-us/4-million-steps/
