On behalf of the Steadfast Runner IC’s, we want to wish everyone a Prosperous Lunar New Year!
As part of the final training session for our 1/21 SVs, we would like to invite you to join us in our Lunar New year vTabata together with the 1/21’s!
Details for the session are as follows: Date: 20 Feb 2021, Saturday Time: 0800-0830 Mode: via Zoom (link available on the SR whatsapp groups and 1/21 FB Group)
We will be running this weekend’s planned session with our Commander SAFVC, and HQ SAFVC Staff! We are hoping to have maximum participation, and due to safe distancing and participation limitations of a F2F (Face to Face) run, this is only possible in the virtual format. This change will allow you to join from the comfort of your home while ensuring your safety as well.
Let’s get together for a good workout together to help work off some of that festive munching, More details can be found on the 1/21 FB group for 1/21 enlistees and the various SR Runner’s whatsapp groups for existing SVs.

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.
