Ride For Rainbows 2020 Virtual Ride Event
Sat Oct 3 - Sun Oct 11
Ride for Rainbows 2020, Singapore’s largest charity cycling event, has been converted into a virtual ride happening from 3 to 11 October. Presented by Club Rainbow (Singapore), the ninth edition of Ride for Rainbows aims to raise $700,000 for the non-profit organisation which raises funds to empower children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses.
Ride for Rainbows 2020 presents two non-competitive cycling categories that are 20km and 70km in distances. Participants can ride anytime, anywhere during the participating period, and on any type of bicycle. Those who do have a bicycle can cycle indoors, at home or in the gym.
This year, with the aim of giving its beneficiaries an opportunity to participate in Ride for Rainbows and give back to the community which has given them much support, a special category has been set up for beneficiaries of Club Rainbow who have mobility constraints. The participating children and their caregivers are members of Team Rainbow. Every child is paired up with a caregiver who will be pushing the child on a wheelchair for a distance of 2km.
TWO CYCLING CATEGORIES
Individual participants can choose from two categories; 20km and 70km. To qualify for the ride, participants must raise the minimum amounts for each category: $200 and $700 for the 20km and 70km respectively.
Members of public can log on to the Ride for Rainbows website (bit.ly/ForTeamRainbow) to support Team Rainbow through pledging donations online. Businesses and corporations are also welcomed to make cash donations or in-kind sponsorships.
