Come 30 November 2021, I will embark on another wheelchair record breaking attempt to complete 7marathons across 7 continents in 7 days, with the hope to also raise 1.75 million dollars for The Straits Times School Pocket Fund.
In 2018, i decided it will be my last ultramarathon to raise funds for those in need (https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/health
Covid-19 opens my eyes to many needs in the community. This is my comeback race.
13 years ago, before my Stage 4 leukemia, on the day of 19th December 2007, i became the fastest person in the world to complete 7 marathons across 7 continents in 26 days, 17 hours, 43 minutes and 52 seconds.
I hope to do it better at the age of 64 years old.
About The Charity
The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for transport or using it to meet other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents who are already struggling to feed their families on their meagre incomes.
The Fund supports about 10,000 children and youth a year. Since the year 2000, the Fund has disbursed more than $80m and helped over 180,000 children and youth.
STSPMF disburses the funds to needy students through participating mainstream schools and disbursing agencies such as Youth Centres, Family Service Centres (FSCs), Special Education (SPED) schools, VWOs working with persons with disability, specialised schools, Children's Homes and PAVE.
STSPMF is a charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
