The Dandelion Ride 2019: Supporting Patients With Life-Limiting Illnesses.

As part of HCA Hospice Care’s 30th Anniversary celebrations, HCA Hospice Care is organising The Dandelion Ride 2019, a 30km ride to raise $300,000 to provide care and comfort for patients with life-limiting illnesses.

 

Most of our patients have limited life expectancy and are with them for an average of three months. With love and care from HCA Hospice Care, patients are able to spend their last days with dignity at home, in the presence of their loved ones.

 

 

The Dandelion Ride 2019 

The aim of The Dandelion Ride (TDR) is to raise funds for HCA Hospice Care and to spread awareness about hospice and palliative care in Singapore.  

Registration is FREE! Riders to garner donations through their networks to raise $530 and qualify for the ride. 

 

“It takes us nine months to prepare to welcome a new birth. I believe that passing on is a life event that ought to be prepared and to be celebrated as well.” -Adeline Tan, Dandelion rider
