Walk for Charity
I am Tay Yong Hung, 71 years old. I volunteered at Rainbow Centre's (RC) Yishun Park campus from 2018 to 2020, and had a fulfilling experience supporting the students with disabilities.

In 2018 and 2019, I walked from RC's Yishun Park campus to Margaret Drive campus, covering 20.6KM over 5 hours. Last year, I walked from Margaret Drive to Woodlands and then to the Yishun campus, clocking 45KM over 10 hours.

My Rainbow Walk #4 this year will connect the new campus in Admiralty Lane to the 3 current campuses, and is estimated to take 11 hours over a distance of 48KM.

Why did I do it?
I hope to raise awareness of persons with disabilities, encourage volunteerism at RC and raise funds to enhance the quality of life of persons with disabilities and their families.

Through kind donations from friends and colleagues, I raised over $6,000 in 2018 and 2019 and more than $8,000 in 2020. I will be embarking on Rainbow Walk #4 in Sept 2021, and hope to raise more than $8,000. Your donation allows RC to develop and enrich their services, ensuring that people with disabilities enjoy opportunities that empower and enable them to lead thriving lives.

Every dollar counts and on behalf of the children, I thank you for your kind donation.

About Campaign

You and I experience the world in a unique way. What we often don't realise is the power of design and architecture to create spaces which shape our lives and include or exclude people with differences, like disabilities. Spaces for Community aims to broaden our shared understanding of inclusive design and accessibility to seed conversations and spark ideas on designing solutions for the disabled. After all, when we solve for one, we solve for many.

Spaces for Community is an educational campaign part of Rainbow Centre's Building for Community fundraising effort to raise $5 million for our new Admiral Hill Campus which will serve 300 students with autism. Designed with a Social Town concept, the campus will host regular inclusive community events and opportunities to connect our students with the public. Support our campaign and join us in building #spacesforcommunity!
