As a registered charity with Institute of Public Character (IPC) status, all donations raised will be eligible for a 250% tax deduction. Which means for every $50 donated, you will receive a tax deduction of $125.

How we engage with our participants

Cycling Without Age Singapore wishes to engage with the participants of Cycle for Good 2021 through a series of lucky draws, special prizes and the grand draw that is scheduled to happen during the finisher event at the end of the fundraiser.

The draws are meant to encourage the participants' fundraising efforts and show our appreciation for their involvement in our cause. Prizes that are given during the draws are a mix of sponsorship packages donated to us by our event partners, budgeted prizes as approved by our Board of Directors.

The winners of these lucky draws will be communicated on the event's official channels - the Cycle for Good fundraising website (www.cycleforgood.sg), Weekly update email from Cycle for Good 2021, WhatsApp broadcast, and Cycling Without Age Singapore's Facebook and Instagram pages. Staff and directors of Cycling Without Age Singapore who have signed up for Cycle for Good 2021 will be excluded in all the lucky draws, special draws and grand draw.

About

Cycling Without Age (CWA) Singapore

Our vision is to build a more inclusive community for seniors and PWDs. Our mission is to eliminate social isolation and empower seniors and PWDs through our programmes and services.

We work to achieve this by:

  • Using our e-trishaws as an intervention tool to allow youth pilots to connect with seniors in intergenerational bonding
  • Giving rides to people who are differently abled to bring joy and a feeling of connecting with the community despite their disabilities
  • Engaging with seniors in nursing homes during COVID-19 through our virtual trishaw rides

Because we believe that everyone has the right to feel the joy of wind in their hair, and to have a sense of belonging.

Cycling Without Age is a movement started in Denmark in 2012, which has now spread to over 50 countries around the world. In October 2015, Singapore became the first country outside Europe to join the Cycling Without Age movement. Our growing organisation of volunteers and social service partners work together to give seniors and PWDs the experience of trishaw rides and feel connected with the local community.

Since 2015 to the present day, we have been able to provide more than 6,000 trishaw rides.
