Walk for a Wish is one of the most important events in the CBRE calendar. One day each year, CBRE team members from across the region embark on a walk to raise money for charity. For 2016, we've decided to walk in support of the Singapore Cancer Society.
Please pledge generously in support of our CBRE staff who will be walking on the 28th of October for this cause.
The Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) was established in 1964 by individuals from the Rotary Club of Singapore West, the Lions Club and Jaycees, and was inaugurated by the then Minster of Health, Mr Yong Nyuk Lin.
Registered as a society in 1984 and accorded IPC (Institution of a Public Character) status as a charity in 1995 by the Ministry of Health, the Society is also a member of the National Council of Social Service and the Singapore Hospice Council. SCS celebrated 50 years of service in 2014. Being self-funded, the Society is heavily dependent on public donations to provide quality services to cancer patients, their families, and members of the public.
To be the leading charitable cancer organisation in Singapore and the region, with a reputation for effective programmes for the prevention and control of cancer.
Singapore Cancer Society is a community-based voluntary welfare organisation dedicated to maximising life by minimising the impact of cancer through research and advocacy, public education, screening, financial assistance, patient services and support, and rehabilitation.
To be the first port of call for the entire cancer journey for all cancer patients in Singapore, especially those who are financially disadvantaged.
