Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM

As part of SPORTFIVE's ongoing efforts to give back to the community, we are excited to launch our latest fundraising campaign: the SPORTFIVE EVERESTING Cycle Challenge in support of The Straits Times Pocket Money Fund.

The idea of 'Everesting' is to pick a hill anywhere in the world and complete repeats in a single activity until the equivalent height of Mount Everest (8,848m) is climbed. As part of the OCBC Virtual Cycle 2020, SPORTFIVE has decided to 'conquer' our own Everest by forming a team to cycle up Mount Faber, where we aim to climb up at least 110 times cumulatively as a group.

We have chosen to fundraise for The Straits Times Pocket Money Fund as the work they do to support children from low-income families to help them through school school is a cause close to our hearts and one that we would like to get behind as a company. The funds raised will go towards helping the families pay for school transportation, meals during recess, school books/necessities etc.

While this will be a monumental challenge that will push us to the limits, both physically and mentally, your support of donating to our campaign will give us the added motivation to reach our goal and help these children in need.

About The Charity

The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for transport or using it to meet other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents who are already struggling to feed their families on their meagre incomes.

The Fund supports about 10,000 children and youth a year. Since the year 2000, the Fund has disbursed more than $80m and helped over 180,000 children and youth.

STSPMF disburses the funds to needy students through participating mainstream schools and disbursing agencies such as Youth Centres, Family Service Centres (FSCs), Special Education (SPED) schools, VWOs working with persons with disability, specialised schools, Children's Homes and PAVE.

STSPMF is a charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
