SINGAPORE swimmer Joseph Schooling had a perfect SEA Games, winning nine golds out of the nine events he competed in at the Games in Singapore. But out of the pool, the swimmer is also chasing another mark - in the name of charity. The University of Texas student hopes to raise $50,000 for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (SPMF). SPMF provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school.
He hopes he can hit the target sum to coincide with Singapore’s 50th anniversary of independence.Said the 19-year-old: “The public has always supported me, and now it’s my turn to give back and to help other people, especially the less fortunate.“I chose the SPMF because children are the future of Singapore. I am fortunate not to be in that position, but I know friends who have been there, and I want to do something to help them.“Hopefully, I can inspire them both with my swims and the funds raised.”
