Frequently Asked Questions

Climb for Rainbows is a non-competitive vertical marathon organised by Club Rainbow (Singapore). This event aims to raise public awareness as well as funds to support the families of children who suffer from a range of major chronic and potentially life-threatening illnesses.

Children in Club Rainbow range from new-borns to youths up to the age of 20. Many of them require frequent hospital visits for treatment, complicated therapy and long-term medication. Club Rainbow works closely with KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital (KKH), the National University Hospital (NUH) and the neonatal unit of Singapore General Hospital (SGH). On the recommendation of doctors, the children are referred to Club Rainbow for critical follow-up support.

All donations received will go towards sustaining the work which Club Rainbow (Singapore) undertakes. Club Rainbow adopts a holistic approach to help our beneficiaries in 5 core aspects:

  • Emotional Support
  • Financial Support
  • Educational Assistance
  • Social Integration
  • Informational Resources

We offer an array of free support services to our beneficiaries in each core aspect, some of which include home and hospital counselling, tuition services, social integration programmes, bursary awards and educational seminars.
