Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Jul 2022, 11:59 PM

In support of Lakeside's #ICAN campaign, I aim to climb up the 17-storey HDB block that I lived at daily, to achieve 715 stories in 30 days (est 6400 ft, about the height Hallasan in Jeju), from 11 June - 10 July 22. Through this, I hope to raise $2000 in donation for their programmes and services for disadvantaged children and troubled youths.

(warm up) 1-8 Jun - started warm up climbs, having not exercised for a long time, and only made it to 7th floor each time.
9 - 15 Jun: 60 floors climbed (avg 8.5 / day)

About Campaign

As a child, your dreams for the future were imaginative and boundless. Our fundraiser campaign, #ICAN____, aims to encourage children and youths to boldly declare their aspirations.

Last year, we raised over $115k which helped us to change the lives of more than 500 children and 250 youths. Help us achieve $300k this year to run enhanced programmes that will guide our children and youths' social and emotional development, and transform their character, develop confidence and competence. Our #ICAN____ fundraising campaign will be running from till 31 Oct 2022.

Will you help us inspire our children and youths to uncover their potential?
