Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Apr 2017, 11:59 PM

We are two childhood friends embarking on a 3 day stage race organized by Action Asia Events in Lijiang, Yunan China.
The Ultra Marathon will cover a total of 100km over 3 days from 1-3 April 2017.
This is our self-sponsored race which we would like to dedicate the fund raised to DOT (Daughters of Tomorrow), a charity organization whose mission is to facilitate livelihood opportunities for the under-priviledged women. Please read more about DOT below.

We have known each other for more than 30 years and always been the pillar of support to each other through the ups and downs in the different phases of our life. In celebration of our 32 years of friendship, we finally plucked up the courage to participate in our first ever overseas ultra-marathon race on our own! It will be a real test for us, 2 "blurred sotong" moms together in getting ourselves to train, to pack, and getting to the start point for the race.

We hope that through this adventure, we could encourage all women to stay strong and positive in all circumstances by us illustrating our resilience in conquering the race.

So we sincerely ask of you, our friends/runners and families to support us by donating generously to this fund-raising event.

Please share this good cause with your friends and families too!

About The Charity

Empower a woman, enable a family.

Statistic:
More than 25,000 women from low-income families in Singapore are struggling to find and sustain a living.*

Existing Gaps:
Women in financial distress are unable to access employment because:

- long-term social isolation leading to low self-esteem
- they lack child-minding and practical resources to attend training and job interviews
- there is limited awareness amongst employers of challenges faced by underprivileged moms

Daughters Of Tomorrow is a registered charity organization with IPC status in Singapore whose mission is to facilitate livelihood opportunities for underprivileged women, and support them in building financially independent and resilient families.



* Based on MSF Comcare statistics and DOT's estimation from more than 60 social service centres' capacities
