Personal Challenge

I will run 2,013 km in the year 2013 – Lets raise $20,130!

My Story

Hi, thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page. I take joy in running and for the year 2013 I had pledged to run 2,013 km! I have been a sports enthusiast since young. I run 3 times per week after work to keep myself fit and healthy. Now I want to combine my love for running with my mission to help the vulnerable and needy through the Singapore Red Cross. I am asking my friends and fellow enthusiasts to join me in this humanitarian mission. For every kilometer that I complete, I wish to raise $10, which would total $20,130 for the year 2013. All the funds raised would be dedicated to the work of Singapore Red Cross, including: Food Aid - The SRC aims to provide monthly provisions of nutritionally balanced food for the most disadvantaged in our society, including the single elderly, single-parent households and notably the skip generation (grandparent-headed households), all with young children who have fallen through the assistance gaps in society; and Transport Aid – To help the needy who are handicapped and wheelchair bound to get to their life-saving medical and healthcare appointments, like dialysis. With an amount of $20,130, Singapore Red Cross would be able to feed 10 families for a period of no shorter than 8 months. Each family on our programme receives $250 food package per month. To date, I have already completed a little more than 1,200 km. A weekly commitment of at least 30 km is needed to hit my target of 2,013 km by the end of 2013. On Sept 29th, I will be running 42 km in the Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur Marathon. It would be my first full marathon in a foreign land. My personal best timing for a half marathon 21.1km is 2hr 01min (Yangzhou International Marathon China – official). It is a challenging task and requires huge amount of perseverance to complete my target. But knowing that people like you are contributing to this worthwhile humanitarian cause will give me great inspiration. Please help to support the cause, every single cent counts! Make every kilometer count – make your contribution now! Please view my facebook page: Charis Chan

    Your effort is such hard work (to me, I hate running), but it is a blessing to be able to do the stuff you love and at the same time benefit others. Keep safe when you run. Cheering you all the way.
