Our Campaign Storyends 11 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM
Introduced in 2011 by SAFRA Tampines, the event provides an opportunity for Operationally Ready National Serviceman and their families to contribute to charitable causes, while promoting fitness and bonding through swimming.
The event adopts various charities each year to raise funds to help the needy. Close to S$1m has since been raised, benefiting more than 12 charity organizations such as Autism Resource Centre, Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore, Down Syndrome Association and SAF Care Fund.
All proceeds from this campaign would be donated to Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore) through Community Chest.
