Personal Challenge

The Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH), established as a voluntary welfare organisation in December 1968, provides community-based mental health programmes and services to promote mental and social well-being and empower people with mental illness in rebuilding their lives. I'm hoping to make a difference by raising money for this cause. I am running too, 6 weeks after suffering a fractured spine and wrist. Please support me by donating.

My Story

I love running, swimming and cycling in that order for sports.  I picked up running two years ago and never looked back.  From there, I moved on to try obstacle course, competitive swimming and picking up on cycling. Early November, I fell while riding and fractured two vertebrae, compressing L1 by 20 percent, ie crushed and reduced the vertebrae height.  I've signed up for the Performance Series 10 km, hoping to break my 1:01 hr for 10 km.  Unfortunately this is now beyond my ability (at this point).  I will attempt to run however for this last race for 2016 and hope to get your support for SAMH - focusing on mental health.  Thank you.  (I have since completed the race with net timing of 1:09.)
