At Singapore Cancer Society, your health and safety is of paramount importance to us.
The current Wuhan coronavirus situation in Singapore has intensified and we regret to inform that we will be cancelling the RFL event on 15 & 16 February 2020. This decision comes after careful deliberation considering the well-being of our participants, volunteers, staff and especially our beneficiaries who are cancer survivors and patients.
We seek your kind understanding and cooperation as we implement the above necessary action in line with the government’s advisory with regards to large scale events. We are taking this proactive step to ensure everyone’s safety.
All updates will be posted on the event Facebook page and affected participants will also be informed via email and SMS.
To carry on the spirit of RFL, which aims to bring together the community to celebrate cancer survivorship, remember loved ones lost or still battling cancer, and to fight back against cancer, Singapore Cancer Society and TalkMed will be planning for a Virtual Relay For Life 2020 with an online virtual event and a 100km virtual run in March or April 2020, for participating teams to do their part in support of the cancer community.
Events like RFL are crucial as we rally the public to come together and bring hope and encouragement to those impacted by cancer. The funds raised through Relay For Life 2020 will support Singapore Cancer Society’s efforts in providing holistic care to our cancer patients throughout their journey. This includes financial subsidies to alleviate the burden from cancer treatment costs, psychosocial and emotional support programmes, cancer rehabilitation, hospice care, and other areas of assistance. The journey can be extremely challenging and with your support, no one needs to fight cancer alone.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to having your continued support for RFL in the coming years.
More details will be made available on the SCS website and social media platforms, in due course.
