Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Apr 2020, 11:59 PM

The arms are giving up, but you hang on to get across the monkey bar. The buckle is slipping from your fingers, but the end is near, or so you tell yourself. Your fingers caked in mud as you inch forward at the leopard crawl. The fire jump is ahead, but only after you get to the top of the rope climb. That feeling of euphoria as you cross the finish line you have been waiting for. Dashed when you heard that the race is no more.

The first race we all been waiting for.

Postponed.

COVID-19.

But Spartan lives on.

To all my Spartan racing friends I send forth a challenge. Let us turn our agonies into positive energy and bring light into the darkness we are all facing. Today I challenge thy to put your body to the test and raise fund for the Courage Fund.

About Campaign

The evolving COVID-19 situation has affected Singaporeans in one way or another, including individuals who are facing loss of income or families that are struggling with additional caregiving duties and additional expenses for essential items.

The Courage Fund was first established in 2003 when Singapore was hit by the SARS outbreak. Fellow Singaporeans donated generously to the Fund to support those who were affected by the outbreak. In this same spirit of uniting the community to support one another through difficult times, Community Chest is rallying the community to provide relief and support to those affected by the current COVID-19 situation.

Where Will Your Donations Go?

Donations will go towards supporting and providing relief to vulnerable individuals and families, including healthcare workers, frontline workers and volunteers, affected by the COVID-19 situation.
