Our Campaign Story

ends 20 Aug 2020, 11:59 PM

I'm Evan Huang, a 7th grader at Singapore American School. I began running at age 4 in Princeton, New Jersey. My first official 5K at age 6 was Run For Dad, to increase awareness and support research on prostate cancer. From Princeton to Shanghai, then to Singapore, I have been running all the way competitively in and out of school for over 5 years. It is so exciting that in less than 2 months, I will become the youngest qualifier for the Run for Hope 10K at age 12! I am eagerly looking forward to fundraise for my first 10K to support a similar cancer research cause.

Running has taught me perseverance, determination and a positive attitude, which are critical in the fight against cancer. Living an active lifestyle, continuing to exercise and having a positive mindset would definitely help stay healthy. Although certain types of cancer are curable, cancer is still a formidable disease that continues to call for more funding to support long-term and rigorous research.

Please support me while I train to run my first 10K by donating a small amount of money! Chinese New Year is almost here and from the Red Packets you receive, taking out 1 Dollar makes a difference. Raising money to support this cause is extremely important. I highly appreciate your generosity and encouragement. Every small donation and positive comment counts! Let's all face the challenge of cancer together, starting with every kilometer.
