On Sunday, 12th May 2019, Aidha and a team of over 100 cyclists, consisting of partners from Anza, Barclays, Cargill, Duff & Phelps, Aidha volunteers and Aidha students, cycled for Aidha’s Tour de Singapore in the OCBC Cycle 2019! The event helped us raise awareness for the empowerment of FDWs and lower-income women and helped us reach the fundraising goal of $30,000 in support of Aidha’s life-changing financial literacy and empowerment programmes.
In the morning, our cyclists met at 4am to get ready for the ride and during the event, our wonderful team of volunteers helped with logistics and cheering on the riders. After everyone crossed the finish line, we met for a coffee, and our CEO, Ms. Jacqueline Loh, thanked the cyclists for their support. One of our alumni’s, Ms. Vita, also spoke about her life-changing experience at Aidha and how it positively impacted her life.
Everyone’s efforts helped us meet our fundraising goals, with a special thanks to to the entire team – cyclists, cheerers, and supporters, and corporate sponsors. We can confidently say this year’s race was a huge success for Aidha as we are awarded as the Longest Distance award at the OCBC Cycle 2019, hitting 3,402 km!
The best fundraisers for this campaign also won first and second prize! In first place were Prerana Bhounsle and Hanna Safdar, who raised a total of $1100. They received a nice bottle of wine, a Sainte-Agathe 2016 Domaine Georges Vernay, sponsored by The Straits Wine Company and a framed photograph from Aidha’s last photography exhibition. In second place was Alan Fowler, who raised a total of $815! He received two bottles of wine from Aidha for his hard work and dedication.
Our other amazing sponsors, Procter & Gamble, also supported us with the goodie bags, including haircare and face care products making the event that extra bit special!
