Ride for Rainbows is an annual riding event organised by Club Rainbow (Singapore) since 2012. This event aims to raise public awareness as well as funds to support the families of children who suffer from a range of major chronic and potentially life-threatening illnesses.

Children in Club Rainbow range from new-borns to youths up to the age of 20. Many of them require frequent hospital visits for treatment, complicated therapy and long-term medication. Club Rainbow works closely with KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital (KKH), the National University Hospital (NUH) and the neonatal unit of Singapore General Hospital (SGH). On the recommendation of doctors, the children are referred to Club Rainbow for critical follow-up support.
All donations received will go towards sustaining the work which Club Rainbow (Singapore) undertakes. Club Rainbow adopts a holistic approach to help our beneficiaries in 5 core aspects:
• Social Support
• Educational Help
• Emotional Support
• Financial Assistance
• Informational Support

We offer an array of free support services to our beneficiaries in each core aspect, some of which include home and hospital counselling as well as tuition services, regular programmes and educational seminars.
The 3 routes will each cover different distances, across different parts of the island. Please refer to the details on the Event Details page for more information.
You will need to fulfil the following requirements in order to confirm a slot to ride in the event, find out more on the Events Details page.
As a group, all members will need to achieve the overall target number of supporters or donation amount. In the event that these targets are not reached, only group members who have either achieved their individual target number of supporters or donation amount will be allowed to ride in the event. These group members would then be riding as individual riders.
All funds raised will be directed to Club Rainbow (Singapore) to support our beneficiaries and their families. No refund of donations would be made.
