A Rainbow Trifecta

Our Campaign Storyends 04 Dec 2016, 12 AM
I'm an adult with a congenital heart defect (ventricular septal defect). Back when I had my corrective surgery, no charity exist to provide support for kids with chronic illnesses and their parents. Today Club Rainbow exists to provide holistic support for kids with chronic illnesses.
For this campaign, I will be completing 3 Spartan Trifecta. For myself, Spartan racing is a manifestation of life's obstacles. When you come across an obstacle, you overcome it. Sometimes you need a hand to conquer tough obstacles, and then you pass it forward by helping another when they need assistances. And as the race takes a toil on you, sometimes all you need is a shout of encouragement to keep on going.
A Spartan Trifecta is the completion of all 3 Spartan race distances. I set a small goal of raising $3000, $1000 for each Trifecta. In doing so, I aim to raise funds for Club Rainbow and encourage the kids to move forward bravely and fight life's obstacles.
I have completed 4 of 9 races, but yet to complete a Trifecta as I have not done any of the 21km (Beast) races yet.
I will be running in the following race:
9 Oct Beast Kuala Lumpur, Mal
19 Nov Beast Bintan, IND
26 Nov Sprint Bright, AUS
26 Nov Super Bright, AUS
27 Nov Beast Bright, AUS
To complete the Trifecta is up to me. But I need your help to raise funds for Club Rainbow. Upon reading this, I hope you will help me reach the $3000 goal and help Club Rainbow do more good for kids with chronic illnesses. Thank you for reading.
Club Rainbow (Singapore) was set up in 1992 to provide a range of comprehensive support services for the families of children who suffer from major chronic and potentially life threatening illnesses. By working closely with KKH, NUH and SGH, Club Rainbow presently helps more than 800 children and their families.
Children in Club Rainbow range from newborn babies and youths up to the age of 21 years. They require frequent visits to hospitals for treatment, complicated therapy and long-term medication. On the recommendation of their respective doctors, these children are referred to Club Rainbow for follow up support.
