Pedal Forward, Be Their Comfort

Pedal Forward, Be Their Comfort

Metropolitan YMCA (MYMCA) is thrilled to announce the return of our annual as part of M.Y Sports Fiesta! In partnership with TRIBAL Triathlon Singapore, our goal this year is to raise $150,000. These funds will be instrumental in blessing and empowering Singapore’s next generation through various programmes and initiatives curated by MYMCA.

The funds raised are eligible for a dollar-to-dollar matching under the ToteBoard Enhanced Fundraising Grant. This means every dollar donated by YOU will be doubled.

 

Our Cause

Amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy to overlook the privilege of a clean home. For seniors like Uncle Lim, living alone with frail bodies and weakened legs, this privilege can seem out of reach. At Metropolitan YMCA, we’ve witnessed firsthand the challenges faced by individuals like Uncle Lim, whose homes have become burdened with clutter.

In severe cases, the very bed they rest on becomes a battleground against bed bug infestations, threatening not only their physical health but also their mental well-being. These circumstances highlight a pressing need for intervention and support.

At MYMCA, we believe in empowering youths to serve the underprivileged community in Singapore. It is our responsibility to ensure that we protect the dignity of our seniors and comfort in their twilight years.

You too can play a crucial role in this endeavor. Join us in extending a helping hand to seniors like Uncle Lim, offering them not just cleaner living conditions but also vital companionship to combat the scourge of isolation. Your support in Bike-a-thon at the Y enables us to make a tangible difference in the lives of seniors, granting them not just clean homes but also refreshed minds and spirits.

Together, let’s be agents of change, fostering a society where every individual, regardless of age or circumstance, is afforded the care and respect they deserve. Give generously and be a part of this transformative journey.
