4WARD TOGETHER 4 MILLION STEPS

Lakeside Family Services is inviting you to take a step for a good course.

Together with their staff, volunteers and friends, they have committed to pledging 1,000 steps for each of the 4,000 (ex) inmates with whom they work.

That is 4 million steps in all.

Walk

Walk with them virtually any time between September 1 and November 30, 2020 and clock your steps. You may track your steps or distance using any fitness app and submit screenshots of the steps or distance covered between the first and last day of each month.

The Top Walker, the participant with the most number of steps clocked each month, stands a chance to win attractive prizes.

Fundraise

Share your efforts with your family, friends or colleagues and invite them to support you by donating or joining the Challenge as well.

You can create your own unique Giving.sg fundraising page with a personalised message or story. Simply click here and then click on the “Fundraise Now” button, then invite your contacts to donate on Giving.sg.

Donate

Lakeside hopes to raise S$300,000 and any amount given will be greatly appreciated.

Lakeside provides a wide range of services, including:

  • The Family Resource Centre, a one-stop centre for prisoners and their families, which is based at Changi Prison Link Centre;
  • Case Management Support for those who are on the Work Release Scheme, as well as life skills workshops through our Release Preparation Programme;
  • Televisit services for families to visit their loved ones in prison through our teleconferencing facility, as well as holistic programmes for financial assistance, family bonding, and casework support after they are released.

While some of these programmes are funded by Singapore Prisons Services, other value-added services still require fundraising support to provide for the needs of ex-inmates and their families.

Date: Sept 1-Nov 30, 2021
