CCF Singapore-Hair for Hope 2011

Posted by SpeakGuru Foundation on Tuesday, August 2, 2011 Under: Cancer blogs

Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) Singapore conducted another ‘Hair for Hope’ event on 23rd and 24th of July to raise funds to help children living with cancer and their families. The purpose of this annual event is to create awareness about childhood cancer in Singapore and to show children with cancer that it is OK to be bald!


And with tremendous support from Argenta Underwriting Asia Pte Ltd, Lloyd's Asia, friends and family, I participated in this event to support CCF, Singapore and SpeakGuru Foundation. Yes! You heard right, I went bald for these 2 foundations and it was one of the most satisfying things I've ever done in my life!

Here's a brief note about CCF, Singapore

CCF, Singapore is well known for providing quality help and resources to children living with cancer and their families. They are also known for their unwavering work in improving the quality of life through emotional, social and medical well-being. I had the privilege to attend one of their volunteer’s orientation classes where they presented an overview of their foundation and it was a real pleasure to learn about their goals and aspirations.

The Result: Record breaking number of shavees at Hair for Hope

Singapore, 23 July 2011- Into its 9th consecutive year, Children’s Cancer Foundation
(CCF)’s annual signature event, Hair for Hope (HfH), has attracted more than 1,400
individuals who have registered to be shaved over the weekend at VivoCity. This is the
highest recorded over the years, a testimony to the strong community support for children
with cancer and their families. (Report from CCF, SIngapore)

Once again, I want to thank you all for supporting me and your generous donation will definitely make the lives of children living with cancer more enriching and more meaningful today. May God bless you all richly!

Here are some pictures of the event:
