We thank you for your support for the Singtel-Singapore Cancer Society Race Against Cancer (RAC) and the cancer cause. To date, there are more than 4000 participants raising more than $1.2 million for Singapore Cancer Society (SCS).
RAC 2021 is a virtual race from 18 to 26 September where participants like you are able to complete the race at your own convenience. We also planned a physical run (subjected to safety management measures) at the end of RAC 2021 to celebrate the success of the race and efforts of our fundraisers.
However, the COVID-19 situation has been fluid and we have seen an increase in the number of cases in the past week. The Multi-Ministry Task Force (MTF) has also advised for all to minimize social interactions and reduce non-essential social activities for the next 2 weeks.
Taking the cue from the advisory, SCS and Singtel have decided to postpone the RAC physical run, initially scheduled for 26 September 2021, by 3 weeks such that we can monitor the situation and decide how to proceed then, aligned with the prevailing advisory from the MTF. The virtual run will proceed as planned and participants can run at their own convenience, within the race period of 18 to 26 September 2021. Fundraising continues till 30 September 2021.
The well-being and health of our supporters, particularly those who may be cancer patients, survivors or caregivers, is of our priority. SCS is committed to hosting a safe, high-quality race, as we have done for many years. While we, as a nation, unite to fight this pandemic situation, we seek your kind understanding and cooperation on this proactive measure, so that everyone is safe and protected.
As our nation persevere in our fight against COVID-19, the battle against cancer continues. This period may be especially difficult for cancer patients and families who may be struggling financially to make ends meet in the midst of job losses and business closures, as well as physically with the treatment of the disease. Platforms like RAC are important as we rally the community to come together to give support, raise awareness and funds to support the cancer community.
Let us continue to keep this going and double up on our fundraising efforts. It is our hope that we can come together for a physical race at a later date, if the situation permits, to celebrate what we have achieved as we come together as community. All funds raised will go towards supporting our efforts in providing holistic care for cancer patients throughout their journey. The journey can be extremely challenging and with your support, no one needs to fight cancer alone.Let us put our best foot forward as we conquer both COVID-19 and Cancer. Please look out for updates from SCS and if you require further assistance, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
All qualified teams and individuals will receive an email invitation by 19th September 2021, Sunday.
Do note that the fundraising period will be open till 30th September 2021.We highly encourage participants to continue supporting the cancer community till the very end.
