I hope to gain invaluable experience through the Footrace, be an inspiration to others and also help raise funds for President's Challenge and its 82 beneficiaries.
From 2022, the focus of PC was to rally Singaporeans to empower and uplift the lives of the vulnerable in our community. Quoting President Halimah, "Together we can return the sense of purpose and dignity to those less fortunate, and give them the chance to contribute to society in their own, unique ways."
Please join me to help support and encourage the needy through your donation! Many thanks for your kindness & generosity!
About the Charity
The President's Challenge started in 2000 and represents a coming together of people from all walks of life, under the President's patronage, to help those who are less fortunate. It is the President's call to all Singaporeans to do their part to build a more caring and cohesive society.
While fundraising continues to be at the heart of President's Challenge, the campaign has gone beyond the giving of money to the giving of time, skills and talent for the less fortunate. President now seeks to play a bigger role in nurturing stronger communities by expanding support for programmes beyond the social service sector and to encourage the young and elderly population to be involved in community work.
Under the leadership of President Halimah Yacob, President's Challenge is looking into more customised and upstream support to help the most vulnerable change their circumstances through skills upgrading, capacity building and empowerment.
