Our Campaign Storyends 14 Apr 2023, 11:59 PM
I am participating in the Standard Chartered Home Run - an employee volunteering and fundraising campaign to support disadvantaged young people through Futuremakers.
Futuremakers is the Bank's global initiative to tackle inequality and promote greater economic inclusion in our communities. In Singapore, all funds raised for Home Run will go towards Community Chest to support Futuremakers-themed programmes and projects.
From 13 March to 14 April 2023, I am volunteering my time to run / walk 100 km and fundraise for this worthy endeavour. I hope you can support me with a small donation to my page. This is of course voluntary, and any gesture will be very much appreciated.
Thank you for your support!
