The Apex850 is an annual charity fundraising bike ride inaugurated in January 2013 with cyclists from both Malaysia and Singapore. The 850km cycle-thon demonstrated the values of determination, resilience and endurance.
The Singapore cyclists are riding for Apex Harmony Lodge and they raised $170k in 2013, through donations by generous individuals and corporate sponsors. And in 2014, they raised S$280k.
Although the cyclists were from two different countries supporting two different charities, they were flagged off together on February 25th in Singapore. They encouraged and supported each other throughout the journey with the common hope to succeed and complete the race for the people they are trying to help.
The funds collected for Apex Harmony Lodge was matched dollar-for-dollar by the Community Silver Trust Fund; and went towards the building up of the capability of the Lodge.
