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.

About the Charity

The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society.

Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. In 2012, under the leadership of former President Tony Tan Keng Yam, the Challenge was expanded to go beyond fundraising by including volunteerism and social
entrepreneurship.

In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment. Visit http://www.pc.org.sg/WhoWeSupport to find out about the benefiting organisations supported by President's Challenge this year. 100% of the donations received go towards the charities we support.
