Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM
Lakeside's Million Steps challenge is back this year! I'm excited to participate and clock my steps again and raise funds for the '4ward Together 4 Million Steps' campaign, benefiting Lakeside's programmes serving 4,000 (ex-)inmates and their families.
Last year, I walked 30km, and I hope to walk 100km this year. I do this in the spirit of support and encouragement for our beneficiaries on their journey to reintegration.
I hope to raise $10,000 for this campaign, and I will match your donations for up to a QUARTER of the target amount!
Your support means a lot to us and the families we journey with. Hope you will donate generously. It would certainly motivate me to keep walking!
If you would like to start your own fundraiser or walk with me, please drop me a text. :D
Thank you so much!
Staff and Supporter of Lakeside,
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
