In celebration of World Kidney Day in 2012, KDF organised a public awareness and fundraising event – Pledge for Kidneys, Pledge to Save Lives. The objective of the event is not only to raise funds, but also to promote the following 3 pledges towards a healthy lifestyle.
1. I pledge to eat healthily.
2. I pledge to drink 8 glasses of water daily.
3. I pledge to exercise daily.
Wristbands each bearing one of the 3 pledges were given with every donation of $1, and served as a good visual reminder for all donors and supporters of KDF. A health exhibition was held as part of the programme and free health screening tests were conducted for members of the public. There to grace the occasion was Guest of Honour, Dr. Lily Neo, MP of Tanjong Pagar GRC. A total of 19,795 pledges were secured throughout the campaign period.
