Dare to Dream

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Dreams, the Living and the Pursuit is a photo journal that wants you to show the world this cycle of dreams, those who live it, as well as those who give their all to pursue it. Not every athlete has the blessings and support from the family to provide them with the necessary tools to succeed. Not every family has the financial strength to give that blessing. The financial rigors of engaging in sports for people with disability are strenuous to say the least, even more so in these trying times. Transport expenses can be significantly more than that of an able bodied athlete simply because buses and trains are just not accessible enough.

This book feature those who have the means to pursue their dreams to chase their dreams. But it is also a stark reminder of the many more who had to give up midway through their journey. Not because the mind is weak, not because the body is unwilling, but because the cold hard facts of dwindling finances told them harshly to. We can't run the race, or complete that lap for them.

But what we can do is to make sure that these athletes have adequate support to be the best that they can be. You can help us to make it happen. you can help them to realize these dreams.
Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) would like to seek your support in adopting our sponsorship package for the commemorative photo-journal titled, Dreams, the Living and the Pursuit. 
We are fortunate to have a foreword honoured by President S R Nathan and the support of a talented photography team led by Mr Kwek Leng Joo, Managing Director of City Developments Limited, to undertake the photography aspect of this project. Senior Correspondent of The Straits Times sports desk, Mr Rohit Brijnath, has also lent his words to pen the athletes’ stories for this publication.
The concept of this book is to feature the dreams and achievements of our athletes with disabilities. This book will serve as an inspiration to people, that with dedication and perseverance, they too can reach the pinnacle of whatever they choose to focus on in life. 
To bring sporting opportunities to more people with disabilities as well as to provide more overseas training for our Para-athletes leading up to next year’s major games - London 2012 Paralympics, we aim to raise funds through the charity gala dinner as well as through sales of the publication.

I hope everyone can do a little part for SDSC. I'm not able to sponsor, thus helping to spread the word. Do go down the City Square Mall today to find out more about the book and sponsorship and help spread the word. Thank you!
