Our Campaign Storyends 18 Mar 2018, 11:59 PM
Last month, I lost a dear friend to Cancer. It happened so sudden that caught all of us by surprise.
She was young, accomplished and living the prime stage of her life when she was taken to be with the Lord. I wish I could have done more, spend more time catching up with her, but alas, all is now with regrets.
I hope to raise awareness towards Cancer and the time, support, attention that are of utmost importance to the brave and strong ones who are fighting against it on a daily basis and sometimes in silence.
Since running has been my passion, I am participating in the upcoming Terry Fox SG Run on 18 Mar 2018 and will attempt to complete the full 10km distance, barefooted. It may be a simple act, hopefully not too painful, and I hope will catch some attention and raise some awareness on the cause I am running for.
If you would like to support me, support the cause I am running for, please donate (regardless of amount) to Singapore Cancer Society.
I thank you for your time and hopefully your support towards this .
