PEDAL for HOPE, PEDAL for LIFE!

On behalf of Steadfast Runner Anna!

I am contribute my part to society by raising funds for the “Kidney Dialysis Foundation” patients by cycling 400km on 31 October & 1 November 2020. Feels free to supports me by donating to them.

Donating is really simple and secure. The money will directly go to Kidney Dialysis Foundation.

” Giving is the GREATEST act of GRACE”

Today I make a first step to contribute my part to society by raising funds for patients under the “Kidney Dialysis Foundation” by cycling 400km on 31 October & 1 November 2020 with 60 locals & foreign cyclists from EPIC Cyclist group in a bid to raise $350,000 for low-income dialysis patients.

It’s going to be grueling, physically and mentally to cycle under intensive heat (I hate being under the sun if you know me), in the rain maybe (I don’t usually ride during wet days). However, this is nothing compared to the journey of less fortunate kidney patients in terms of their physical and mental suffering in their battle with kidney failure. Your donations will make a BIG difference to the patients of KDF.

Once again, my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your donation to KDF patients, and support for my action.

“Your GREATNESS is not what you have, It’s what you GIVE.”

~About KDF~
The Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF) is a non-profit charitable organisation, established in February 1996 by Dr Gordon Ku, a kidney specialist. KDF provides subsidised dialysis treatment to needy members of our community so that these patients will not be deprived of treatment due to financial difficulties. It also supports research for a cure for kidney diseases. Patients needing treatment from KDF are referred by the medical social workers in the restructured hospitals. A holistic approach is taken when caring for patients as it is KDF’s mission to look after the well-being of patients by nurturing hope and confidence to make life more meaningful, even for the most destitute. With the commitment to provide high quality, low cost treatment to patients who are unable to afford treatment KDF has with the support of donors and sponsors, set up a few centres to care for its patients. To date, KDF has served over 849 patients of which 79 have gained a new lease of life through a kidney transplant. It is currently serving about 266 patients and annually, at least $8 million is needed for the organisation’s operation cost.

Buddy Run Project!

On behalf of SR Central IC Stephanie.

Grab a buddy! Get out and run. Or walk. Or just get active! That promise to meet someone increases the likelihood you’ll get out.

If we want to start a list of runners looking for a buddy, we can do so via our WhatsApp group. Otherwise just PM your favourite SV and get running! (:


vWorkout brought to you by Steadfast Runners TPY!

On behalf of SR TPY IC Sukriti

Date: 30th September

Hey Volunteers!

Celebrating the wrap up of our 6 months virtual-workout-journey with a Happy Dance 💃🏻 !

Dancing can be an intense workout that burns major calories and builds muscle.

For a twist, our usual workout squats, shoulder taps and lunges were mixed with moves out of the North Indian Punjabi Folk Dance, Bhangra!

If you’ve ever seen a Bhangra performance or taken a Bhangra dance class, you’ll know how energetic this dance style is. With its high kicks and wide squats, it’s almost like Bhangra was made to be a workout!

The music gets you excited about moving and the moves generally involve high impact hops, which drive the heart rate up in no time!

Social distancing, self-quarantining, and staying at home has made it harder to exercise. But through the routines SR@TPY hopes to have given you ideas to stay active and healthy at the comfort of your own homes!

Thanks to everyone who walked with us through this journey of trying multitudes of workouts catered to sweating out at home 🙂

Special thanks to my co-host Wan Lijia Jennifer for being a sport – always!

Until next time, Stay Home, Stay Safe, stay Active, Stay Healthy!
