One Km at a Time
for HCA HOSPICE CARE
Our Campaign Storyends 31 Oct 2016, 11:59 PM
This is my first time raising funds for HCA Hospice Care. I have been signing up for a lot of runs and have not done much in terms of giving to society except for a number of causes like: Race Against Cancer and Swim for Hope.
I am not exactly an ultra-marathoner but since I heard about this work and the group of runners doing this I thought I should give it a try. At least there is a group I can run with for a common cause.
To make it more interesting, a couple of friends I know in the running community are also in this group. Then there is the time I went for my Alumni's concert where I met my old classmate's friend who works in HCA Hospice Care.
So here I am joining the Trailblazers100 for this year's Craze Ultra for 43Km.
We understand the medical and psychological needs of patients, caregivers and their families. By managing our patients pain and other symptoms with specialised care and support, we enable them to spend their last days at home, in comfort and dignity, with their families and loved ones.
Additionally, we care for the caregivers by providing them with psychosocial support, practical training, and advice at all hours with our 24/7 hotline.
As our home hospice service for adults is provided free-of-charge to all patients under our care, we rely on donations to support what we believe is a basic right: to die with dignity.
With your contribution and commitment to helping us, we are confident of achieving our goal to adding life to the days of patients with life-limiting illnesses.
