Row For Hope 2016
About Campaignends 31 Oct 2016, 11:59 PM
The National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) is delighted to partner the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Singapore to hold the inaugural NCCS Row For Hope Boat Races on 27 August 2016 to raise awareness and funds to benefit cancer care and survivorship of those affected by cancer.
The Boat Race is a set of annual rowing races between the Oxford University Boat Club and the Cambridge University Boat Club, rowed on the River Thames in London, England. Following this long-held tradition, the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Singapore held its second boat race at the Marina Bay in April last year (the first was held in 1997). This year, they have chosen to partner with NCCS as a show of their support for the fight against cancer.
Cancer is still the No. 1 killer in Singapore, accounting for 30% of all deaths in 2014. This is 5 times more than deaths caused by accidents, violence and poisoning put together. Last year, NCCS attended to more than 135,000 patient-visits and treated close to 70% of cancer cases in the public sector. The cost of cancer treatment has also increased significantly.
We are raising funds through this event in aid of patient care programmes to improve the quality of life of cancer patients in hope that less will suffer from this terrible disease. From this event, we hope to raise $70,000.
If you would like to make a gift or sponsor any part of the event, please contact Hilman at 62369440 or email [email protected] to learn more.
As the cancer centre for the community, the NCCS provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary and holistic cancer care, and sees close to 130,000 patient visits each year. We partner our patients in their cancer journey towards better and longer survival, instil hope of regaining good health, and pave the way for a cancer cure. Cancer is the number 1 killer in Singapore, accounting for more than 1 in 4 deaths. You can do your bit for the community by joining us in the fight against cancer - giving cancer patients a chance to higher quality of treatment and care. Please note that in the event that the donations made for a specific purpose has no new applicable project to support after a 2-years waiting period, the Community Cancer Fund Board of Trustees reserves the right to channel these donations to the Fund's general pool in support of its charitable objectives.
