Summary-2015 fund raising projects


What a thriller the year 2015 has been for Bike-Aid (Singapore).

But what thrillers are there for the beneficiaries of Ride for Rations (RfR) 2015? Would they not be concerned more with what is on the stove and on the plate? let’s reel back to the year in action in Bike Aid.

Wasn’t it awesome that as cyclists filled their pledge cards, another programme “Giving Back to Cyclists” was unfolding. What more with workshops on proper cycling techniques, preventing cycling injuries, proper stretching and even yoga!

Alright, now payback…..and everyone did. Raising funds so that 330 households and 100 primary school children can continue receiving their monthly rations and daily breakfasts respectively. As we raised, we raced……or rather cycled. 240km…. from Malacca to Singapore. There were moments of fun….and pain….like the head winds for over 40km from Batu Pahat onwards. Where nature brought our speeds down to the teens….as if telling us that such is the pain too of empty stomachs.

Thank God, it wasn’t all in vain. Just like other supporting events…..the 1000km ride that dovetailed in with the Malacca-Singapore ride…….the sale of potted plants, photo portraits and the recycling of bicycles for resident.

But wouldn’t giving a fishing line be preferred over giving fish? Certainly, if only we could nip the problem of poverty in the bud. And the idea of a study corner for under privileged children began to gain traction.

Thanks to Prudential, Prudence and all sponsors without whom there wouldn’t have been the Prudential Charity Ride. It was on a bright, sunny morning that 165 cyclists took to the road…..covering either 50km or 100km round island. With the blazing afternoon sun, would you blame some who found a short cut and covered 93km!!? After all, the funds have been raised; plans are progressing ….. and soon we will see the birth of a study corner in Chai Chee.

And this will require mentors, volunteers, teachers, counsellors, etc. That calls for another thriller. Make sure you volunteer!!

Ride for Rations 2011 Memories


Ride For Rations 2011
Malacca to Singapore
8th of July to 10th of July 2011


RIDE FOR RATIONS 2011
On the 9th and 10th of July 2011, members of Bike-Aid Singapore organized a charity rid from Malacca to Singapore, ‘Ride for Rations 2011’, in aid of needy, socioeconomically challenged families and residents registered with the Sunlove-Marsiling Neighbourhood Link, a project by the Sunlove Abode for Intellectually Infirmed Ltd which is registered under the Charities Act.

The ‘Ride for Rations’ comprised of: an approximately 102 kilometers ride from Malacca (Emperor Hotel) to Batu Pahat (Crystal Inn Hotel) on the 9th of July, and subsequently, an approximately 135 kilometers ride from Batu Pahat to the Sunlove-Marsiling Neighbourhood Link which is located at Block 3 Marsiling Road.Beyond participating in the ‘Ride for Rations’, the 60 cyclists who registered for the Ride were encouraged (and expected to) engage in a fundraising drive and accumulate a minimum sum of S$500 each for the deserving beneficiary prior to the Ride.

The contributions of participants, cyclists and supporters alike, exceeded expectations throughout the two-day Ride and in the collection of donations, which amounted to a sum of S$78,122. There were no organizational costs incurred for the ‘Ride for Rations’ as participants (cyclists and supporters) paid for their own accommodation, meals and various other individual costs incurred in the course of the Ride, ensuring as such, that every dollar and cent collected in donations was channeled to the beneficiary. These funds were immediately, in August 2011, channeled to the Sunlove-Marsiling Neighbourhood Link to purchase monthly rations amounting to S$70, from August 2011 to July 2012, for 93 needy homes (families and residents) registered with the charity.

The list of deserving families registered with the Sunlove-Marsiling Neighbourhood Link indeed extends to 868 families living in rental one-room flats, approximately 80% of who are elderly and suffer from medical and intellectual infirmities, and have been made reliant upon minimal monthly financial help from self- help bodies which are often used for the coverage of rental, conservancy, electricity and basic food. The staff at Sunlove-Marsiling Neighbourhood Link solely, according to meticulous needs-based criterion, selected the list of 93 deserving families to which the amount raised from the ‘Ride for Rations 2011’ was channeled. Beyond the ‘Ride for Rations 2011’, a significant number of participants in the Ride who have witnessed the gratitude expressed by families registered with the Sunlove-Marsiling Neighbourhood Link for the monthly rations, have regularly been involved in the monthly distribution of rations and supporting the charity in its efforts to provide medical, nutritional, educational and recreational support services for the elderly and vulnerable families in the area.
