As scouts, we have pledged to serve others. As a parent-run open scout group, we want our scouts to grow up as active members of society. This year, we want to support the LKC Run It Forward Campaign and the President's Challenge.
Our unit has pledged to collectively hike / walk more than 1000km in support of this campaign, and we hope that we will be able to inspire others to donate to this cause.
Run It Forward 2021 with LKCMedicine is a virtual run proudly organised by Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, Nanyang Technological University.
The School aims to pay it forward and help the disadvantaged communities in Singapore affected by the COVID-19 pandemic through its support of President's Challenge and its 92 beneficiaries. 2021 being NTU's 30th anniversary, Run It Forward 2021 will also be supporting NTU Priorities Fund which was established in 2020 to help students affected by COVID-19. During these challenging times, LKCMedicine also wants to highlight the importance of mental and physical wellbeing through the adoption of enjoyable and healthy exercise.
