#RideforRations2024

There are families and individuals living in HDB rental flats who may face seemingly insurmountable challenges everyday. They could be plagued with chronic illness, living alone with minimum income or having irregular employment, to name a few.

Ride for Rations supports 580 households with monthly food rations and 191 school-going children with breakfast sets, I an effort to alleviate part of their stressors. This ground-up initiative is organised and managed entirely by volunteers, and every single cent that is raised goes towards the cause.

#RideforRations2024 will have two editions:

Melaka-Singapore edition:
6th – 8th September 2024

Virtual edition:

Only available to

  • past RfR participants
  • those who have been involved in RfR activities such as ration distribution or undertaken fund-raising for RfR in the past

Please email registration@bikeaid.org.sg.
