SCS Charity Athletes
About Campaignends 31 Dec 2016, 11:59 PM
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
The Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) was established in 1964 by individuals from the Rotary Club of Singapore West, the Lions Club and Jaycees, and was inaugurated by the then Minster of Health, Mr Yong Nyuk Lin. Registered as a society in 1984 and accorded IPC (Institution of a Public Character) status as a charity in 1995 by the Ministry of Health, the Society is also a member of the National Council of Social Service and the Singapore Hospice Council. SCS celebrated 50 years of service in 2014. Being self-funded, the Society is heavily dependent on public donations to provide quality services to cancer patients, their families, and members of the public. VISION To be the leading charitable cancer organisation in Singapore and the region, with a reputation for effective programmes for the prevention and control of cancer. MISSION Singapore Cancer Society is a community-based voluntary welfare organisation dedicated to maximising life by minimising the impact of cancer through research and advocacy, public education, screening, financial assistance, patient services and support, and rehabilitation. IMPACT STATEMENT To be the first port of call for the entire cancer journey for all cancer patients in Singapore, especially those who are financially disadvantaged.
