Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2019, 11:59 PM

I am running 5km for HNF because I want to spread joy to these elderly patients. I don't really like to run as I always think running is like a long journey. It has been many years since we last run. However, thinking about the long journey that the elderly have to fight against their illnesses, this 5km is not long and I am determined to do this with my husband to keep fit and run for a good cause. Hope that we can get back into shape again like we used to before. ;)

Please support us by donating towards this cause!

About Campaign

Run for Joy 2019 aims to get 50 runners to run and raise funds for homebound elderly patients with multiple chronic illnesses in conjunction with International Day of Older Persons.

Many frail elderly persons, especially those with multiple chronic illnesses are socially isolated and feel that life has lost its meaning. This campaign targets to break the social isolation and fear of old age by getting the community to support HNF to bring joy to these elderly people through our Senior Care Centres in the communities.

Support us now by 2 simple steps:
1. Pledge to run a certain distance (in km) in the month of October at any time and any place.
2. Click "Fundraise Now" to reach out to your peers and families to raise $500.

Your donation will allow our elderly patients to continue to receive quality healthcare services and stay active in the community.

*All runners will receive a special token of appreciation made by our patients.
