Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2019, 11:59 PM

Update: The team completed the run in a time of 5:13Hours. Braving the heat of 38degrees, the team ran through the remote areas of Aviation Park Road and the dreaded Tanah Merah Coast Road with the full support of the team car.

LIVE Tracking will commence at 7am 19th October.

Home Nursing Foundation (HNF) provides a full suite of holistic home healthcare services to their patients which include medical and nursing care, as well as therapy and social support. With an aging population being more evident in Singapore, it is important that such home care services not only have a solid foundation and practice, but that they can continue to be sustainable for a long time to come.

Our team will be running the East zone to raise funds for HNF via the Run for Joy initiative. Please do support us as we battle inadequate fitness, tired legs and possible heatstroke to complete the 28Km route covering the eastern part of Singapore. Any amount is accepted, but of course, we hope that you will be generous in your donation!

Thank you!

About Campaign

Run for Joy 2019 aims to get 50 runners to run and raise funds for homebound elderly patients with multiple chronic illnesses in conjunction with International Day of Older Persons.

Many frail elderly persons, especially those with multiple chronic illnesses are socially isolated and feel that life has lost its meaning. This campaign targets to break the social isolation and fear of old age by getting the community to support HNF to bring joy to these elderly people through our Senior Care Centres in the communities.

Support us now by 2 simple steps:
1. Pledge to run a certain distance (in km) in the month of October at any time and any place.
2. Click "Fundraise Now" to reach out to your peers and families to raise $500.

Your donation will allow our elderly patients to continue to receive quality healthcare services and stay active in the community.

*All runners will receive a special token of appreciation made by our patients.
