Our Campaign Storyends 31 Oct 2017, 11:59 PM
Together with our partner Frasers Centrepoint, we will be hosting the second [email protected], On Track to a Better Life on Saturday, the 30th of September 2017 with the objective of promoting the well-being of body, mind and spirit among the student population and community at large, as well as raising awareness for the intellectually disabled athletes and acknowledging their efforts.
What is [email protected]?
[email protected] is a fundraiser where participants will sign up to run a 5km route near the SUTD campus planned out by the committee. In its second year, [email protected] is expected to attract over 350 participants from all walks of life and hope to raise $10,000 from the event in which all of the proceeds will be donated to the Special Olympics Singapore (SOSG).
What are the objectives of this run and how will it be used in supporting the athletes from Special Olympics Singapore?
Through this run, we aim to encourage the SUTD community as well as the public to lead a more active lifestyle through running and to raise awareness of difficulties disabled athletes face and the role society can play to help them realize their dreams.
Your donation will be used to partially fund the training of SOSG Athletes for the Special Olympics World Summer Games in 2019, and to support SOSG Running and its other Outreach Clubs.
Special Olympics (SO) Singapore was set up in April 1983 as an adjunct committee of the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS) and the Association for Educationally Sub-Normal Children now known as Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN). Subsequently it was officially registered as an independent voluntary welfare organisation with the Registrar of Societies on 15 January 1991 and as a charity with the Commissioner of Charities on 22 February 1994. SO Singapore is affiliated to the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) and Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC). SO Singapore is recognised by Sport Singapore, formerly known as Singapore Sports Council, as a National Sports Association (NSA). SO Singapore is also a certified Institute of Public Character (IPC) organisation.
