Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

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

This year, a group of us from COUPA SOFTWARE have signed up for the fundraising campaign by doing an overnight walking from Lakeside and ending the whopping 40Km journey at Changi the following day. The Walk will take about 10 hours to complete.

Besides raising awareness of the extraordinary work Lakeside Family Service and volunteers have done. We like to raise funds to support various programs run by Lakeside Family Service that have benefited many former inmates and their families who need support, love, and healing during their rehabilitation.

Thank you and God Bless

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/
