According to a Facebook post seen on the Facebook page of Deputy Prime Minister (DPM) Lawrence Wong, the Minister shared that he had joined 800 other bikers to ride and raise funds for charity.
DPM Wong also added in one of his photos that he had not rode a bike for almost 20 years.
The event was organised by Riders Aid Singapore (RAS) as part of fund raising efforts for the Singapore Children’s Cancer Foundation.
DPM Wong also shared that he was glad to see the ‘Singapore Spirit’ coming from Singaporeans from all walks of life from the event itself.
He added that he is confident that as long as Singaporeans have the mindset of ‘paying it forward’, we will be able to turn all our challenges into opportunities and make Singapore a more caring and inclusive society.
Here is the Facebook post by DPM Wong
“The Riders Aid Singapore started with a simple idea — a group of motorcycle enthusiasts rallying to do good together.
Glad to do my part to join the RAS and Ride For Charity today — with more than 800 bikers to raise funds for the Singapore Children’s Cancer Foundation.
Seeing so many of us at the event, I am heartened by the #SingaporeSpirit — Singaporeans from all walks of life coming together for the common good and a larger purpose. I am confident that as long as we have the mindset of “paying it forward”, we can turn challenges into opportunities, and build a racially harmonious, caring, and inclusive Singapore for all.”
