Teo Tee Loon walk

A MILLION STEPS

A Million Steps raises funds for Lakeside Family Services’ work serving ex-inmates and their families. Lakeside aims to inspire hope, reconnect families and support them in their journey to reintegration. 

Teo Tee Loon started his social work career in 1992 at Lakeside Family Services, reaching out to disadvantaged children, youths and families. Today, he is its Executive Director. 

“This year, I am going on a 35km cross-island walk from Lakeside to Changi Prison as a sign of my commitment to walk the long journey of recovery and and reintegration with prisoners and their families.

“Come join me in giving hope and healing to others by taking part in this campaign. Thank you in advance for your kind support!“

Staff, volunteers & friends of Lakeside will attempt to walk A Million Steps to raise $280,000.

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.

They also provide Case Management Support for those who are on the Work Release Scheme, as well as life skills workshops through their Release Preparation Programme.

In addition, Lakeside provides Televisit services for families to visit their loved ones in prison through their 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.

To participate:

  •  Walk with them virtually 

Complete a target of 8km if possible, or any distance, at your own time, at any location.

Lakeside will be attempting the challenge between October 18 to 24, 2020. Join them and clock your steps then if you can, or at anytime before October 24. 

  • Fundraise with them 

Share your efforts with your family, friends or colleagues. Invite them to support you by donating or joining the challenge. 

  • Donate

Date: Clock your steps anytime before October 24, 2020
