Run for a reason............Make a difference in the lives of others

My Story

How easily we take what we can do today for granted. That beautiful landscape, the vibrant colours, walking, running,… these actions seem like a 'normal' activities to us. Did we stop to count our blessings? There are others out there who struggle with life little deeds? Help make a difference to the lives of others who want to ‘see’ and feel the world the way like us. We would like to invite employees who plan to run in the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore (SCMS) on Sunday, December 1, to form a Credit Suisse team. In line with the spirit of providing team based opportunities and promoting the importance of exercise and good health, we would also like to remind ourselves of the lesser privileged who do not have the opportunity to do sports as easily as most of us. For the first time last year, 7 visually impaired runners completed the 10 km run in SCMS, with the help for volunteer guides who ran alongside them. This year, to applaud their courage, Credit Suisse will be dedicating our run to raise funds for the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH), in particular, for their Sports for the Blind Club. We will be donating SGD1.00 to SAVH for every kilometer covered in your run. You may also use this link to do your own fundraising for SAVH. Through you can make safe and secure donations to sponsor our cause. The proceeds of your support are immediately sent directly to the selected charity. Using this given platform is really simple and most importantly it's also a really cost efficient way for the charity to raise funds. This page allows you to follow our progress; share it with friends; voice encouragement or even join us and get involved yourself! Your colleagues/friends will be taking part in Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2013 in 01/12/2013 and aiming to raise money for Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped Please dig deep and donate, every little counts!
