Our Campaign Story

ends 11 May 2021, 11:59 PM

Hello! I'm grateful to be healthy and able to undertake another instalment of Ramadan Runs (RR). The money raised this year will go to Caregivers Alliance Limited, a non-profit that supports caregivers to persons with mental health issues and dementia. The role of a caregiver is challenging, and they need all the education, support and self-care in order to achieve mental wellness and be in the best position to care for their loved ones.

As always, I'll be personally donating $3 for every kilometre I run whilst fasting in the month of Ramadan, on top of all the donations received via this fundraiser. You can follow my progress/show some love via Instagram @ramadanruns

Thank you for your donation towards helping caregivers be well, and help their loved ones get better!

About Campaign

Walk for Mental Wellness (W4MW) is a fundraising campaign to raise funds for Caregivers Alliance Limited (CAL). Tapping on the Tote Board's Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme, we aim to raise at least $250,000 for a dollar-for-dollar matching from the Government.

Leveraging on this campaign, we hope to raise greater awareness about mental health and CAL's role in helping and supporting caregivers of persons with mental health issues and to mobilise more donors and supporters for our cause. Champions who are keen advocates for mental wellness and caregiving will be participating in this campaign.

You Donate $100, Champions Walk 1 km

Based on the idea of "You Donate, We Walk", every $100 raised will amount to 1 km in walking distance. As a donor, you are encouraged to channel your donation to any of the Mental Wellness Champions from the Individual or Group category, and your selected Champion will clock the distance that matches the donation amount that you donated. All donations $50 and above will qualify for 250% tax-deductions.
