Our Campaign Storyends 31 Oct 2019, 11:59 PM
LIVE Tracking will commence at 7am 19th Oct.
Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. As we go about our busy daily lives at work or in school, many families are facing the utmost challenges at home. These families, often wrought with both emotional and physical fatigue to care for their loved ones, many of whom are homebound patients from varied circumstances, need sustainable assistance in many ways.
To commemorate the International Day of Older Persons on 1st October, we are collaborating with HNF to promote a Run for Joy Campaign. Through this campaign, we aim to raise funds with our running efforts for homebound elderly patients, and hope to engage the community to support HNF and bring joy to these elderly people through the HNF's Senior Care Centre in the communities.
Please extend your kind donation in support to our running team South Zone where we hope through our sheer commitment to complete the designated 30km run, we can all pitch in a collaborative effort meaningfully to make a positive impact in improving the quality of life of HNF's elderly patients and their caregivers.
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.
