Hi, I am Swee Hean or for some who know me as Warren Lim and I love running. I started running 3 decades ago and now in my 50s, I still enjoy every run. While it may sounds cliche, running helps me to keep fit and maintain an active lifestyle. Running is an incredible way to relieve stress and it definitely has taught me a lot about myself and life.
I have done 38 half marathons and this year I plan to be part of the Trailblazers100, help raise funds and awareness for the terminally ill patients at the HCA Hospice Care. The race will be on terrain, a different experience altogether for me, as compared to all the previous runs for a cause where they were mainly on roads and flat grounds. Like all other Trailblazers100 runners, I'll put in my heart and focus into this run.
This year the Trailblazers100 aims to raise S$160K by running the distances varying from 43km to 162km. I am committing myself to run 43km on 3 Sep 2016. I am blessed to have just turned 58 this August and would like to raise S$5,800 for the cause. I would like to seek your support to help me achieve my goal.
We need your support to achieve this together. I am there to complete and not to compete to support HCA Hospice Care. My sincere thanks to my family and friends for their continuous support and encouragement.
"The pain that I am going through during the run is not worst off than the pain that the patients are battling through their illness" - Warren
We understand the medical and psychological needs of patients, caregivers and their families. By managing our patients pain and other symptoms with specialised care and support, we enable them to spend their last days at home, in comfort and dignity, with their families and loved ones.
Additionally, we care for the caregivers by providing them with psychosocial support, practical training, and advice at all hours with our 24/7 hotline.
As our home hospice service for adults is provided free-of-charge to all patients under our care, we rely on donations to support what we believe is a basic right: to die with dignity.
With your contribution and commitment to helping us, we are confident of achieving our goal to adding life to the days of patients with life-limiting illnesses.
