Every year, Singapore Sports School organises a fund-raising event to benefit a deserving cause or charity. Besides doing good, it does well that such a Community Social Responsibility programme helps to nurture the charitable spirit in our student-athletes and create an opportunity for them to give back to the community.
Last year, the School’s effort benefitted Toryo High School, a school in Japan which was affected by the 8.9 magnitude earthquake in March 2011.
This year, the chosen beneficiary is Club Rainbow (Singapore), a non-profit organisation set up to provide a range of comprehensive support services for the families of children who suffer from major chronic and potentially life-threatening illnesses.
The main activities were a run and a swim; for all participants to run a combined 1,200 km and swim a total of 200 km. Both targets were met, with student-athletes, their parents and staff running 2,707.2 km and swimming 218 km. The running distance included 250 km achieved by five staff, each of who ran 50 km.
The Annual Parents Challenge was also organised to coincide with the fundraiser with registration for participation and other donations adding to the pot. Student-Athletes, Parents and Staff teams played five sports – badminton, bowling, captain’s ball, football and shooting.
The School’s corporate sponsors also chipped in – Energizer, Singapore Pools, TYR and Yonex donated drink vessels, recyclable bags, hand towels and T-shirts for sale. Not to be outdone, Sporting Parents Network, the School’s parent volunteers group, also sold donated items such as T-shirts, mini table fans, key chains and travel cutlery sets.
The target was to raise a modest S$20,000. At the end of the afternoon, everyone congratulated the Student-Athletes as winners of the Annual Parents Challenge shield and cheered the $41,073.00 raised for Club Rainbow (Singapore).
