Aye! We are from Temasek Secondary Canoeing team and we are supporting this fundraising event hosted by Hwa Chong Canoeing team.
We find that this event is a good way to help and spread awareness about Muscular Dystrophy as many canoeists from all over Singapore will be participating in the 24 Hour Static Kayaking Challenge, allowing them to learn about this disease and spread their knowledge about it.
As athletes/canoeists, we often forget how fortunate we are to be able to move and play sports with ease. Hence, to show our appreciation, we want to raise as many funds as possible for this cause.
We believe this charity event will improve many lives of those who have Muscular Dystrophy. They may not know the names of the donors but knowing that there are people out there generously helping them is a good feeling.
Do share this fundraising page with your friends and family!
Thank you. :)
It began with a mission: That those with muscular dystrophy (MD) should be able to enjoy the benefits of sports like we do. This is where we, the Hwa Chong Canoeing Team, come in. Our fundraising event, the 24 Hour Static Kayaking Challenge, was organised in 2011 to bring sports closer to those with MD through the sports subsidy scheme offered by Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore) (http://www.mdas.org.sg/home/), the one charity in Singapore centred on persons with MD.
MDAS provides programmes, services and subsidies to maximise the quality of life of its beneficiaries. One way to improve the quality of life of its beneficiaries is to promote the importance of sports; its beneficiaries enjoy weekly sports sessions, subsidised heavily by MDAS.
This year, the 24 Hour Static Kayaking Challenge is back for its 6th edition. It will be held on the 19-20th May at the Star Vista, and we need your help to make our efforts go further!
