Our Campaign Story

ends 13 Sep 2020, 11:59 PM

Having the ability to exercise and do sports is something I'm truly grateful for. During this circuit breaker stay-at-home period, I feel lucky to be able to continue running and biking, and I've come to appreciate more and more how important training is to mental health, resilience, and positivity. Throughout my life, sports have also provided me with identity, friendship, and community. I'm raising money for Special Olympics so that others can be exposed to the same joys of sports.

I'm training for my first triathlon, an Ironman 70.3 taking place in Taiwan on September 13th. There are a lot of kilometers to cover between now and September, so I thought it would be fun to donate per kilometer. My starting contributions will be:
- running: $3 SGD per 10 km
- biking: $1 SGD per 10 km

If you're interested in contributing and are physically able to run, bike, or swim (or any other socially-distanced-distance-exercise), I encourage you to donate per kilometer too!

About The Charity

Special Olympics (SO) Singapore was set up in April 1983 as an adjunct committee of the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and the Association for Educationally Sub-Normal Children now known as Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN). Subsequently it was officially registered as an independent voluntary welfare organisation with the Registrar of Societies on 15 January 1991 and as a charity with the Commissioner of Charities on 22 February 1994. SO Singapore is affiliated to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC). SO Singapore is recognised by Sport Singapore, formerly known as Singapore Sports Council, as a National Sports Association (NSA). SO Singapore is also a certified Institute of Public Character (IPC) organisation.
