Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Sep 2017, 11:59 PM

On 14th September 2017, Dr. William Tan will embark on a 500km journey from London to Paris. He is doing this to raise funds for charities in UK, Singapore and Malaysia in support of cancer research and cancer care. A grueling challenge even for an able bodied athlete, Dr. William will be hand-cycling across various terrains and through the English Channel over 4 days before completing the course going past the famed Arc de Triomphe and then on to the Eiffel Tower for the finish line.

London Speaker Bureau is proud to sponsor and support Dr. William Tan for this meaningful and challenging event.

Dr. William Tan was paralysed from the waist down since the age of two due to poliomyelitis. Instead of being hampered by his disability, it drove Dr. William to work harder and conquered the odds in both academia and sports from a very young age. He graduated to become a physician, one of his childhood dreams, and worked at the National Cancer Centre in Singapore as neuroscientist and physician. He was also the pioneer batch of Singapore Paralympians who competed in the 1988 Seoul Paralympics. He has also completed 7 marathons in 7 continents, including the Arctic and Antarctica, in wheelchair.
