At the last race, we celebrated World's Down Syndrome Day by running with colourful socks! This race we are running to support DOT.

More than 25,000 women from low-income families in Singapore are struggling to find and sustain a living. Daughters Of Tomorrow aims to support these women towards gainful employment and a better future. $1 from every ticket purchased will be donated to DOT.

About DOT

Registered as a charity under the Charities Act of Singapore, Daughters Of Tomorrow complements and supports existing training and workforce-related agencies by connecting volunteers and community resources to enable each woman on an individual level. By deep-diving into the practical day-to-day constraints of these women, we offer hand-holding and individual coaching to help each woman reach regular and sustained employment.

Our beneficiaries are women aged 20 to 60 from low-income families (surviving on $200 to $500 per capita per month) mostly living in government-subsidized rental flats, and facing multiple stressors in their families. Since our incorporation in August 2014, we have impacted more than 800 women through our skills-training, job-bridging, and support programmes. Through sustained employment, women in our employment bridging program regain confidence in themselves and gain a social support network that helps them through their difficult times.

"The women’s potential are limited only by our perception." - Carrie Tan, Founder


Let's do our part to help DOT to continue their efforts - Empowering Women, Enabling Families by making an extra donation here


Have a great run ladies! Enjoy and Run Safe.
