Ride for Rainbows 2019
Sat Apr 27 @ 7:00 pm - Sun Apr 28 @ 6:00 am
A flagship fundraising initiative by Club Rainbow (Singapore), the eighth edition of Ride for Rainbows will kick off on 27 April, Saturday at 7pm.
This year, the event aims to create more awareness by reintroducing a shorter cycling category and raise more funds for the non-profit charity organisation.
Club Rainbow (Singapore) empowers its beneficiaries who have chronic illnesses by providing a wide range of services that meet their needs from new-born to the age of 20 years.
Besides generating greater awareness for the club’s cause, Ride for Rainbows also presents non-competitive yet challenging cycling routes that range between 28km to 108km; to exemplify the struggles beneficiaries experience in their lives. More importantly, the rides are a test of tenacity and resilience; two qualities that Club Rainbow hopes to instil in their beneficiaries as they embark onward in their journey towards an enriching life.
Over the past few years, notable personalities have also participated and contributed to this worthy cause; Speaker Tan Chuan-Jin, Minister Gan Kim Yong, Ben Yeo and Gurmit Singh are some past riders.
This year, a group of current and graduate beneficiaries, staff, and volunteers will be cycling to raise funds for children in Club Rainbow (Singapore). One of them is Sharil Hamid, who is previously a beneficiary of Club Rainbow. Sharil who will be riding the 58km route alongside other graduate beneficiaries says, “My family and I have benefitted greatly from Club Rainbow’s support. Now I wish to do my part to help other children and their families”.
THREE CYCLING CATEGORIES
Individual participants can choose from three categories; 28km, 58km and 108km. To qualify for participation, riders must raise the minimum donation amounts for each category: $128, $588 and $1,088 for the 28km, 58km and 108km respectively.
