Race against Cancer, a project by ACE leaders and SCS

For Student Blog

Dear SST family,

We are the SCS@ACE team, a group of ACE leaders who collaborate with Singapore Cancer Society (SCS) to advocate for their work and encourage student volunteers to contribute to their effort.

This year, we hope to be able to help raise awareness about Race Against Cancer (RAC), one of SCS’s flagship events. RAC is a race to save lives and it aims to raise funds to help to drive SCS' programmes and services such as the SCS Cancer Care Fund and SCS Cancer Rehabilitation Centre. 

RAC 2021 will be a 9-day event, from 18 September to 26 September 2021, where participants can run anywhere in Singapore by using a GPS-enabled app (STRAVA is the preferred app) to track their runs. 

To support RAC, the SCS@ACE team started an initiative: The Call 2021, a virtual advocacy outreach, which would help to promote and gather participants (adults, students, or anyone willing to participate) for RAC 2021.

To help introduce SCS and RAC to SSTudents, as well as the public, we have created multiple promotional materials: 
1. Promotional Poster
2. Promotional Video
3. Posts on @sstactvocates

How you can help:
1. Raise awareness! Encourage your family and friends to participate in RAC 2021. Just by running, you can help these people and contribute a little more to society even during a pandemic. Do share our promotional materials too!
2. Take this opportunity to give back to society and participate in RAC 2021! Not only can you train for NAPFA, keep fit, and most importantly, you can also help raise funds for cancer patients.

Want to participate in RAC 2021? Here’s what you can do:
1. Head over to https://www.raceagainstcancer.org.sg/signup to sign up for RAC 2021. Please note that you have
to obtain parental or guardian consent before participating in the event and are required to fundraise a minimum of $30 to participate. Do read the rules and regulations.
2. Registration closes on 17 September so hurry sign up!

Should you have any further enquiries, feel free to ask us via email at sung_yeji@s2019.ssts.edu.sg and sim_zi_hui_kylie@s2019.ssts.edu.sg.

For more information regarding RAC 2021, check out https://raceagainstcancer.org.sg/ or email rac@singaporecancersociety.org.sg.

We look forward to your participation in RAC 2021 and please do ensure safety distancing measures are always in place and adhered to when participating in the activities. 

Thank you!

Warmest Regards,
The SCS@ACE team

Handbrake Requirement for Bicycles

Dear Students

Over the past few years, we have seen an increase in the number of people using bicycles as a mode of transport or for leisure, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic. This may include students who cycle to and from school, or during the weekends with friends and families.

Some students who cycle may be fixie enthusiasts. Fixies, also known as fixed-gear bicycles, generally do not have hand-operated brakes, but instead, rely on the rider’s pedal resistance to stop. This makes it challenging for riders to brake quickly, endangering themselves and other path and road users.
To improve safety, from 1 September 2021, LTA requires that all bicycles ridden on public paths and roads must have at least one functioning handbrake.  Please note so as to promote a safe and gracious riding culture in Singapore. 

Thank you.

School of Science and Technology, Singapore
