Venue: Tai Seng, 18 Tai Seng Street Singapore 539775
A flagship fundraising initiative by Club Rainbow (Singapore), the seventh edition of Ride for Rainbows will kick off on 21 April, Saturday at 9pm. Riding high on last year’s successful instalment which saw over 700 riders taking part, the event aims to raise more funds for the non-profit charity organisation.
Empowering its beneficiaries who have chronic illnesses through providing a wide range of relevant compassionate services, Club Rainbow first unveiled Ride for Rainbows in 2012 as a signature fund-raising event to reach out to a greater audience through a sports activity.
Besides generating greater awareness for the club’s cause, Ride for Rainbows also presents challenging albeit non-competitive cycling routes that range between 60km to 107km; a nod to the struggle beneficiaries experience. 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.
THREE CYCLING CATEGORIES
This year, individual participants can choose from two categories; Rolling 15 (60km), Roaring 25 (107km), and companies can take up the Corporate Challenge; with the option of either 60km or 107km, for up to 4 participants per group.
To qualify for participation, individual riders and groups must raise the minimum donation amounts for each category: $700, $1,200 and $10,000 for the Rolling 15 (60km), Roaring 25 (107km) and Corporate challenges respectively.
Members of public can log on to the Ride for Rainbows website to support the riders through pledging donations online. Businesses and corporations are also welcomed to make cash donations or in-kind sponsorships
