News: KDF Millennium Charity Ride Gears Up For An Epic Journey

For more than 60 cyclists from Epic Cyclist, the season of giving does not end at Christmas. They will be taking part in the KDF Millennium Ride 2015 from 23 – 26 January 2015 to raise funds for the Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF).

The KDF Millennium Ride 2015 is organized by Epic Cyclist, a Singapore cycling group, and it is a long-distance charity cycle to complete 1000 kilometres in 4 days, crossing borders at Malaysia and Thailand.

Epic Cyclist created these rides as a means to raise funds for a good cause, as well as to challenge its participants as individuals and as a group. The volunteer cyclists come from all walks of life, from university undergrads to homemakers, banking executives to a 62-year old retiree on a classic steel road bicycle!

Through the KDF Millennium Ride 2015, Epic Cyclist hopes to raise at least $300,000 for the less fortunate who requires dialysis treatment.  Individual donations start from $5, with $1000 and more securing a mention in the KDF annual report. Both individual and corporate donors get a 2.5 times tax rebate if the donations are received by 31 January 2015. Companies looking to add their logos to the jersey will have to sign up by 7 December 2014. Interested donors can show their support for the cyclists by donating here or to fill up this form.

The Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF) is a non-profit charitable organisation which provides subsidised dialysis treatment to needy members of our community. KDF is focused on a niche group of patients, who are from the lowest 10% of the income group and referred by medical social workers from the restructured hospitals. Most of their patients hold jobs such as cleaners, hawker assistants, store assistants and taxi drivers.

All proceeds from the donations will be channeled to the needy kidney patients under the care of Kidney Dialysis Foundation.
