12 DAYS TO CHRISTMAS, LET'S DO SOMETHING GOOD FOR CHRISTMAS 2015.
Come 15 – 18 January 2016, Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF) will held its annual KDF Millennium Ride 2016 for the 3rd year organised by Epic Cyclists. Over 70 cyclists will be participating in the KDF Millennium Ride and riding 1000km in four days to raise funds for the Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF).
KDF is a non-profit charitable organisation that 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 per cent of the income group and referred by medical social workers from the restructured hospitals. Most of these patients – if employed - hold jobs such as cleaners, hawker assistants, store assistants and taxi drivers.
Held since 2014, the annual KDF Millennium Ride is organised by Epic Cyclists, a local cycling group, and known as one of the most physically and mentally demanding rides in the region. Cyclists will endure at least 8 hours of cycling to complete a distance of 250km each day through various types of terrain and weather conditions from Malaysia to Singapore.

In 2015, A total of S$322,000 was raised through KDF Millennium Ride this year was matched by the Community Silver Trust Funds at 40%, making it a total of S$450,800 for KDF. Epic Cyclist hopes to raise at least $300,000 in 2016 for the less fortunate who requires dialysis treatment.

This year Chubby Botak Koala and Little Devil will volunteer as Safety Drivers to somewhat contribute to the welfare of the Epic Cyclists. With this, we hope that to raise more awareness and share the passion and mission of helping KDF patients.
All proceeds from the donations will be channelled to the needy kidney patients under the care of Kidney Dialysis Foundation. Members of the public can donate via these links:
