Cobalt Singapore is going on the Green Corridor Run 2016 for charity!
Our Singapore team has signed up to run a 10.5km course along the historic old railroad in Singapore which will close for good shortly following the race. Held along an uninterrupted, beautiful stretch of greenery & woodlands in Singapore, the 10.5km course starts at the historic Tanjong Pagar Rail Station and winds its way along the green corridor to finish at the old Bukit Timah Rail Station.
In tandem, we felt it would be meaningful to run in support of our adopted charity - Arc Children's Centre. A bit about our beneficiary - the Arc Children's Centre offers programs and activities dedicated to enriching the lives of children with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses, in a warm, healthy and supportive environment. All proceeds from our fundraising will go towards this noble cause.
1) To operate a day-care centre for children, regardless of race or religion, who are between 3 years to 18 years of age, have been diagnosed with cancer or other life-threatening illness(es), have undergone intensive medical treatment in response to their illness(es), are especially susceptible to infection due to the immunosuppressive side effects of such treatment and are unable to attend regular schools as a result (the "Children"). (2) To provide, within the environment of the day-care centre, care and enrichment for the Children, whose families have limited or depleted financial resources for their treatment whether due to having incurred expenses in seeking curative medical treatment for their life-threatening illness(es) or otherwise. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the Company may exercise the powers: (a) To provide compassionate emotional, moral and psychosocial support to meet the needs of the Children, their family members and/or immediate caregivers outside the hospital environment through various programs; (b) To provide continuing education in a hygienic environment to promote the well-being of the Children and to nurture and develop their natural talents through a curriculum approved by the Ministry of Education Singapore; (c) To nurture and develop the Childrens' confidence, growth and social and intellectual potential to lead a fulfilling life despite their life-threatening illness(es) through their participation in various activities; (d) To enhance and support the physical development of the Children through their participation in various exercises and therapy; and (e) To promote and improve other forms of support for the Children by providing a place of respite and reprieve for their family members and/or immediate caregivers, so as to restore family members and/ or immediate caregivers' weakened spirits and strength for their journey alongside the Children.
