Painkillers Charity Cycle in Support of Habitat for Humanity:
Rebuilding in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines

0730Hrs, 15 December 2013, Sunday
Car Park B1 East Coast Park

(Note: All participants in the Charity Cycle are requested to bring their own bikes and helmets must be worn at all times on the ride for safety purposes)

Painkillers is a small group of avid recreational cyclists in Singapore. We love our camaraderie, rides, runs, and triathlons as much as our Chicken Rice in Singapore. Above all, we love to contribute towards a good cause and, where possible, to help the less fortunate.

Working closely in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity, we are organizing a Painkillers Charity Cycle Event on 15 December 2013, Sunday, at 0730hrs at East Coast Park Car Park B1 (Flag-off will be at 0745hrs) for all cycling enthusiasts and their families. The primary focus of the Event is to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity in their efforts towards rebuilding the many homes, families and lives that have been destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The route will be a 21km loop on the East Coast Park’s Park Connector Network (PCN) and is ideal for a light workout or leisurely and scenic ride for groups of friends and family. An overview of the route is indicated below.

There is NO registration/participation fee for this Event.

However, we do hope for your generous donation when you participate in this Event. In this respect, we do suggest that a minimum donation of S$20.00 per participant be made to Habitat for Humanity either at the online donation portal at: http://www.give2habitat.org/member/Painkillers2013/Charitycycle15dec2013 (please bring your Tax-Deductible Donation receipt on the Event Day for registration) or a cash donation to the friendly Habitat for Humanity staff on the Event Day itself. 100% of all donations received will go directly to Habitat for Humanity.

This event is conducted by an all-volunteer group. We are not event professionals and do not take any gratuity from this event. We are fortunate to have the generous support of our sponsors who have provided water, accessories, services and time for this Event. Consequently, there will be no razzmatazz at this Event. No VIPs, loud music, colourful banners, event Tee-shirts, energy gels, isotonic drinks, etc.

Be that as it may, the safety of our participants is of paramount importance. Hence, we are fortunate to also have secured the help of volunteer Doctors and First-Aiders in attendance to render basic on-site medical assistance if required.

Through your participation and generosity, we hope to raise as much funds as possible so that as many homes and lives as possible can be rebuilt through the work of Habitat for Humanity for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. As for the Painkillers and all our enthusiastic and selfless volunteers, a smile, a word of thanks and a pat on our back will do.

We ask you to bring your families and your friends and spread the word about this Event.

After all, tis the Season of Giving; here’s wishing you a joyful and fulfilling Blessed Christmas.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the Event!

The Painkillers Team
