Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

Hi my name is Yurnita, coach for para sports named Boccia, a precision ball sport played by persons with physical disabilities. I have been coaching Boccia athletes for 10 years.

Boccia has improved and empowered people with disabilities. It is a game that has been proven to help para athletes develop essential life skills, responsibility, innovation and communication.

Boccia athlete Jeralyn Tan said,

Boccia has improve my quality of life. I wish to inspire other people with disabilities through para sports.

Due to some regulation changes in Boccia, we need to repurchase licensed Boccia equipment's for trainings and competitions. These are quite costly at approximately USD$750 per set (approximately SGD$1000 )

The Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) has kindly set aside some funds for this purpose, but we hope to acquire more sets and increase the number of participation of Boccia athletes participating in training and in competitions.

Hence, I am helping to set this campaign to raise funds for purchase of new licensed balls and increase the number of participations of Boccia para athletes in international games.

All donations here will be channeled 100% towards SDSC for the Boccia team. SDSC will apply to get donations matched dollar-for-dollar under the One Team Singapore Fund, administered by the Ministry of Community, Culture and Youth.

No amount is too little. Reach out and support our para-athletes to achieve their dreams!

Thank You!
