KDF Millennium Ride Gears Up For An Epic Journey

By  |  0 Comments

The season of giving does not end at Christmas as more than 60 cyclists take part in the KDF Millennium Ride next year from 23 – 26 January to raise funds for the Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF).

Organised by cycling group Epic Cyclist, the KDF Millennium Ride 2015 is a long-distance charity cycle that requires participants to complete 1,000 kilometres in four days, crossing borders at Malaysia and Thailand.

Epic Cyclist created these rides as a means to raise funds for a good cause, as well as to challenge its participants both as individuals and as a group. The volunteer cyclists come from all walks of life, and range from homemakers to banking executives, there’s also a 62-year old retiree on a classic steel road bicycle, proving that age is never a deterrent to get physical.

Through this event, Epic Cyclist hopes to raise at least S$300,000 for the less fortunate who require dialysis treatments. Corporations donating more than S$10,000 are eligible to place their company logos on cycling jerseys and safety vehicles, donations of S$5,000 and above can net their logos a spot on the jerseys, while contributions of S$1,000 and above will ensure a mention in the annual report. Companies who want to have their logos affixed to the jersey will have to sign up by 7 December 2014.

Individual donations start from S$5, and as mentioned above, donations of S$1000 and more will secure a mention in the KDF annual report. Both individual and corporate donors get a 2.5 times tax rebate if the donations are received by 31 January 2015.

All proceeds from the donations will be channeled to needy KDF patients.
