Raiders' Leadership bonding - Cycling @ Pulau Ubin

Selamat Hari Raya Haji. It was a public holiday. A day whereby the adults do not have to work, students do not need to go school. 9 of us gave up the day to stay connected with our family. Instead, we took this opportunity to organise our Raiders' Leadership Bonding Day - Cycling at Pulau Ubin. We had a fun day with all kind of experiences - Hot, Wet and dirty... At first was burning hot weather, then suddenly rain heavily in the afternoon... water and dirt splashed on our body when cycling... It was indeed a tiring and yet enjoyable day!!! We hope to bring all our leaders closer and get bonded.

Below are the Photo link taken during our Ubin outing.

YouTube video to share with you - Outstanding 7 yrs old Taekwondo Kid

Raiders, a YouTube video to share with you - Outstanding 7 yrs old Taekwondo Kid.

Friday, November 12, 2010


It’s gonna be our another yearly Raiders’ event day. Ever since our 1st Raiders’ Fun Day on 29th May 2010, our event committee has been constantly brainstorming for ideas for our next Raiders’ event. This time round, Raiders TKD would like to promote charity awareness to our trainees. We are organizing the Raiders’ Charity Day 2011 – Terry Fox Run.

“Terry Fox was a Canadian humanitarian, athlete, and cancer research activist. In 1980, with one leg having been amputated, he embarked on a cross-Canada run to raise money and awareness for cancer research. Although the spread of his cancer eventually forced him to end his quest after 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 mi), and ultimately cost him his life, his efforts resulted in a lasting, worldwide legacy. The annual Terry Fox Run, first held in 1981, has grown to involve millions of participants in over 60 countries and is now the world's largest one-day fundraiser for cancer research; over C$500 million has been raised in his name.” (extracted from Wikipedia). We hope to pass on his virtue to our members.

Being a TKD exponent, not only are we physically fit and agile, we should also possess the right positive attitude and be passionate to the needy. While we are enjoying ourselves to the fullest, let’s not forget about the less fortunate ones who need our help too. We should be grateful for the comfort zone that we are in. Hence, it is time for us to pay tribute to the society. Thru this Charity event, we hope to instill the good characteristics of a charitable deed to all our members; for you shall be our future leaders to the society.  

Let us all work towards the good deed and contribute our part. We hope to see the charitable support from all our members and their families. We strongly look forward to your support to make this Raiders’ Charity Day 2011 a successful one.

Interested supporters, pls go to this link to download the form. Please kindly complete and forward the form together with the monies to Mdm or Sir latest by 21st Nov’2010.

You may also find more information pertaining to the event via this link.
