9 months of vigorous planning for Waves of Hope Swimathon 2014 has finally come to a refreshing end on 6 September. During this period, we watched ourselves grow as individual leaders, witnessed perseverance as we watched swimmers complete their pledged laps and through it all, were blessed by volunteers’ and the donors’ relentless giving.
With that, we send our greatest thanks!
To celebrate, we are holding our one and only Post-Event Sales!!
Buy a sunscreen bottle, a pair of goggles and/or our event tee at a marked-down price!
All proceeds will go towards our beneficiary, SportCares, to help the financially less priviledged children and marginalised youth in our grassroot communities.

Last Saturday, on 21 June 2014, we had the honour to meet and greet our beneficiary from SportCares for the second time. From 5pm to 7pm at Jurong Stadium, we played station games with them while they taught us how to play football. It was challenging to dribble the ball amongst the skillful players, but they were really helpful in guiding and instructing us. We also mingled around with the boys and learnt about some of their personal stories. These boys may look young and innocent, but they are strong fighters at heart, and I really awe them for their courage and determination. They spoke of Saturday Night Lights (a programme in SportCares where the boys play football as a form of empowerment instead of idling their time away) with such great passion, enthusiasm, and gratitude, which further encourage my team and I to work even harder to reach our goals! Do help us by clicking on the support button and see which ways you can lend a hand in our cause!
You can take a look at the games in our facebook album here! These games will continue to undergo a rigorous improvement process so that we will be ready to present the best that we can on 6 September! We can’t wait!
Wavey is now a step closer to our goal, thanks to you! Please keep supporting us in our cause and don’t forget to sign up for the swim! 🙂
Our booths will be up tomorrow to Friday outside Central Library, LT27, and Bizad room! Come and support us now!
This is Wavey, our mascot swordfish. He has a dream, which is to meet the love of his life. With our help, we can help him to achieve his goals. So, how can you help?
If you have a bit of spare change, we would really appreciate it if you use it to help our cause. You can check out the Beneficiary tab to see who our beneficiary is for this year! Donate to our cause now to help us reach our target goal of $35 000!
Why we encourage donations via FunDonate:
For every dollar donated (minimum $20, maximum $1000), FunDonate tops up a dollar to our cause. FunDonate will supplement up to $5000 dollars for each event, and so we hope that we will be able to reach this amount to help Wavey move towards his dreams. But more importantly, the money raised will go into enhancing the lives of many others.
What if you can’t afford to donate $20?
Don’t fret! You can always
- Gather a group of friends to sum up $20
- Post on our FaceBook page to find other like-minded people to donate together (also help us to like and share our page)
- Ask your parents and relatives for help
