BE A RUNNER, BE A FUNDRAISER!
1. What is New Life Charity Run?
New Life Charity Run is an online fundraising campaign organised by New Life Community Services by riding with CSC’s “Run by the Bay” event. We encourage people to form a team of runners and then rally their networks to donate to New Life. It’s basically like a ‘peer-to-peer fundraising’ wherein we leverage on our supporters (runners) to fundraise on our behalf. As runners, you also become fundraisers!
