Mapledreams: 5 S'poreans Help Others By Attempting Their Own Achievements

Come 27 August this year, 5 Singaporean youths will race in the Ironman Canada at Penticton, British Columbia. That is a gruelling 3.8km swim, 180km bike, followed by a full marathon run of 42.2km.

In a bid to realise their physical and mental abilities, Choonwei, Tricia, Joe, Sijie and Tommy are going to raise funds for charity as well. They have chosen Mercy Relief as their beneficiary. They will raise and race to achieve their own dreams while helping the underprivileged.

Now, Mercy Relief is in need of more funding since the recent devastating earthquake in Yogjakarta while the destruction of Mount Merapi volcano looms.

The five youths have designed a special dri-fit T-shirt for this fund-raising event. Each T-shirt costs S$30.00. 75% of the proceeds will go to Mercy Relief, while 25% will go into the Mapledream fund.

Anyone interested may contact Tricia at or call her at 9128 1817, or call Joe at 9112 9903.
