On 9 November, I will participate in the Great Eastern Women half marathon run in Singapore. Ever since I started running, I have always wanted to do a half marathon. This is the first time I’m running in Singapore and I’m pledging it to a good cause. To know more about my training progress, please follow my Facebook account!
When I first started training for this run, I will constantly think of others who do not have the blessed opportunity to accomplish their own dreams or wishes- i.e. people who are suffering from medical conditions, poverty etc.
Two years ago, I lost Monserat, my 10 year old niece, from a medical condition. She would never be able to accomplish all her dreams. This painful revelation gave me an unnerving thought- I can help make other’s wishes come true! So, I decided to fundraise for Make- A- Wish Foundation® Singapore.
From this run, I hope to raise at least SGD $1,000 to contribute to a child’s wish. Make- A- Wish Foundation® Singapore grants the one true wish of children between 3 to 18 years old with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish can give countless memories, joy, hope and strength to the child.
I hope you will support me and the Foundation’s kind cause. Your support will make a difference in a child’s life. Please, help me raise funds by matching contributions to every KM I run. Any amount of donation is deeply appreciated.
Through simplygiving.com you can make safe and secure donations to sponsor me. The proceeds of your support are immediately sent directly to my charity.
