Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Nov 2021, 11:59 PM

Since 1981, Methodist Welfare Services (MWS) has been working to enrich the quality of life for the disadvantaged and distressed through integrated and holistic services. All funds raised from this virtual event will go towards supporting more than 8,000 disadvantaged children, at-risk youth, families in distress, the socially isolated and the chronically ill and frail under MWS care so that they may have life to the full. To find out more about the work of MWS, you may visit mws.sg/mws-empowerun-impact-stories.

I will be running a total of 40km from 23 Oct - 7 Nov 2021 and hope to raise a total of $500, which can contribute to a low-income resident's stay at a a nursing home. Do join me in supporting this cause and making a difference to someone out there we needs it more than we do!

We hope each runner will help us raise $500 so that collectively we can reach our $600,000 fundraising goal!

This is also an opportunity for those who are celebrating their 40th birthday to mark the milestone by running for a meaningful cause.

About The Charity

Founded 40 years ago in 1981 and registered as an Institution of a Public Character, Methodist Welfare Services (MWS) is a multi-service organisation that manages 20 centres and outreach programmes across Singapore.

We serve people in need regardless of their race and religion. Our critical services support low-income and/or distressed families, children from low-income families, at-risk youths, the destitute, sick and/or frail elderly, and the socially isolated.

We enable all to have life to the full by reducing poverty, alleviating the strains and stresses of modern life, helping the elderly to age in place and live with dignity, nurturing the potential of disadvantaged children and rehabilitating at-risk youths.
