Learners of today, Champions of tomorrow
OBW is made to empower marginalised youths through fitness. Beneficiaries can differ in each participating city and are chosen based on causes championed. Organisers in each participating city may choose a beneficiary that is closest to their hearts.
FIGHTING FOR HOPE
Apart from raising funds for the youth of tomorrow, OBW also seeks to empower them with fitness. Teams representing various charities taking part in OBW annually, fighting alongside athletes of all ages and abilities. We believe that experiencing the community first-hand helps to build the belief that the youth are not alone - many others are Fighting For Hope for and with them.
SINGAPORE CHILDREN'S SOCIETY
Singapore Children’s Society (SCS) protects and nurtures children and youth of all races and religions. Today, SCS operates 13 service centres islandwide, offering services in the four categories of: Vulnerable Children and Youth, Children and Youth Services, Family Services, and Research and Advocacy.
The money raised through OBW will go directly to the four youth centres of SCS to help support developmental programmes for youth in the community who predominantly come from lower income families with multiple social issues. The lack of opportunities and resources have often placed them at a disadvantage comparatively to peers their age.
The youth centres provide therapeutic interventions to help positively develop values in the youth, focusing on their strengths and potential whilst providing them with the opportunities and resources to become the best versions of themselves.
