Through Sports

SCS Charity Athletes dedicate their passion for sports to 'Minimising Cancer' and 'Maximising Life'. These individuals push themselves not for personal fulfilment, gleaming medals, or public recognition but to improve the lives of those impacted by cancer.

The SCS Charity Athletes Programme started in 2009, when a group of sportsmen and women chose to dedicate their passion for running to raise awareness for cancer. Since then, the programme has expanded into other areas of sports such as cycling, mountain cilmbing and trekking.  

Each year, our SCS Charity Athletes participate in the Race Against Cancerto raise funds to support the Singapore Cancer Society’s programmes and services. Each mile conquered and every dollar raised give our beneficiaries hope for a better tomorrow.

Our community of SCS Charity Athletes comes forward to support our cause for various reasons. Some dedicate their fundraising efforts for a loved one who has cancer. Others champion for the cancer cause after recovering from cancer. Join our community of SCS Charity Athletes and channel your passion for sports towards doing good!

Support a SCS Charity Athlete

The SCS Charity Athletes featured here have each started a fundraising page for Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) on online donation portals such as Give.asia, Giving.sg and Simplyigiving.com. 100 % of all funds raised will be donated to SCS. SCS does not associate with athletes who claim to raise funds and awareness for SCS without first setting up a fundraising page for SCS on an online donation portal.

“I am NOT an athlete and running is not (my)
favourite thing to do, but running due to a good cause
is something
I really want to do in this life.
I encounter friends and families who are suffering from cancer
and I feel so helpless every time I see them suffer.
I wish to gain awareness and raise as much funds for
these people when I can.”

“Cancer is a topic quite close to my heart – I have family
members who are survivors and some who
have unfortunately succumbed. I have seen folks fight till their last breaths. My heart goes out to their family members.
This is a small gesture from my side to
support the spirits of the fighters! Alone I can do only a bit,
but together we can do a lot!”

To all my friends, join and help me raise fund for them.

“Cancer treatment is expensive. Very very expensive.
And for anyone to make a life and death decision because
of finances is just heartbreaking.
We know how it felt because
we were once beaten to that level too…
My run is to raise awareness on early screening
and routine check-up to fight cancer,
and also raise funds for children, youth and to facilitate as well through the cancer rehab program via
donation to Singapore Cancer Society.”

through mountain climbing.

“This cause first inspired me to live life to
the fullest when my uncle was struck by
nose cancer but had sought help early
and managed to battle the cancer.
This mission to climb Mount Everest,
the highest mountain in the world, symbolises
the will to fight, to not give up and
to ultimately grab all of life's wonderful opportunities.”
