Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2018, 11:59 PM
We'll be conducting weekly donation based running groups here in Singapore to raise awareness and speak up about Mental Health.
Any profits and all donations from our runs will be donated to Samaritans of Singapore.
1 in 10 people in Singapore suffer with mental health problems. After each running group session, there will be optional 'Chat&Juice' session at Joe & The Juice, to not only encourage a discussion but also to provide a social environment for people to meet others.
Come exercise, raise money and awareness, feel amazing, grab a free juice, nutrition advice and have a chat with like minded people.
Samaritans have always been on the other end of the phone for those who have nowhere else to turn. These amazing volunteers help people who really need support and I couldn't be more proud to help contribute to their funding.
About The Charity
On average in Singapore, more than 400 lives were lost to suicide annually from 2014 to 2019: that's about 1-2 suicides every day.
According to the WHO, for every suicide death, more than 20 others would have attempted it.
Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is the only suicide prevention centre in Singapore. We are a secular non-profit organisation which provides 24-hour confidential emotional support to people thinking about suicide, affected by suicide, or who have difficulty coping during a crisis. We take a holistic approach to suicide work with an emphasis on suicide prevention, intervention and postvention.
