About Campaign

Racing is not for self-glory. Featured here are athletes who truly care about the community and are channeling their passion for sports towards doing good. No longer is it for personal fulfillment, gleaming medals or the applause of men, but to improve the lives of those who are in the fight against cancer.

The SCS Charity Athlete Programme gives sportsmen and sportswomen the opportunity to dedicate their passion to a meaningful cause to save lives. Each year, they participate in the annual fundraising event, the Race Against Cancer (www.raceagainstcancer.org.sg), to help raise funds towards Singapore Cancer Society. Each mile conquered and every dollar raised gives our cancer patients strength and hope to keep fighting against cancer and a hope for tomorrow.

Through your own network community, the amount of funds raised for the cancer cause is multiplied as compared to a single donation by an individual.

To learn more about the Athlete you are supporting, click on their fundraising profile page to read their stories, and be inspired. Each of them have a unique story about why they run, and who they run for. Follow them, as they document their training schedules, and the events they are participating in.

The Charity Athlete logo features a lilac ribbon which represent all cancers and general cancer awareness. Find out more about the charity athlete programme here: http://www.singaporecancersociety.org.sg/DonatingVolunteering/CharityAthletes.aspx

About the Charity

Established in 1964, Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) is a self-funded voluntary welfare organisation which provides patient care services to needy cancer patients through its welfare, hospice home care, cancer treatment subsidy and rehabilitation support programmes. In addition, the Society also provides free cancer screening services and promotes cancer awareness and prevention through its public education and community outreach programmes.

For the past 56 years, SCS has extended support to over a hundred thousand beneficiaries through various services and programmes. The impactful programmes continue to contribute in SCS' four key strategic thrusts:

- To reduce the incidence of cancer
- To increase survival rates
- To improve the quality of life of cancer patients and survivors
- To rally the community to take proactive action and join the fight against cancer
