Our Campaign Story

When I successfully completed my summit attempt of Aconcagua (second highest of the 7 summits at 6962m) on 8th January 2020, I felt that I had started 2020 on a great note, it was going to be the year to accomplish big things - I will climb a bigger mountain, I will excel in my new job etc. Things took a turn with Covid, there were no opportunities for travel, it did not work out as expected with my career and it felt that 2020 went by without accomplishing much. So, when a last minute opportunity came along to run the Virgin London Marathon on 4 October, I jumped at the chance.

"When you can't control what's happening, challenge yourself to respond to what's happening". To train in less than 6 weeks and run the London Marathon was my way of finding my own challenge. But I didn't want to stop at just helping myself, especially when Covid has made things harder for the vulnerable and the needy.

To run for another purpose, I like to seek your support to donate to ONE Singapore to raise funds for their ONE Emergency Fund, which provides financial and in-kind assistance to individuals and families who need help, but cannot obtain it elsewhere or cannot get it in time. Training for this marathon has been difficult, increasing each week of training to cover 50-60% more distance than the previous week. Your kind donations will help me forge on and be my source of motivation to keep going.
