Swee Tin has had an eventful 12 months with Care2Run, having gone from parent to volunteer mentor and currently, the co-facilitator of our seventh Foundation Programme. Yet, ask her, and she’ll readily admit that she wasn’t always certain Care2Run was the right fit for her and her three children, especially Swee Tin’s eldest boy, Chu Kian.

Mazuin tells us that she enrolled her eldest son, Mikhail, in the Junior Leaders Programme because she felt that he lacked focus. He’s certainly come a long way since then – from reserved teen to confident Care2Run Junior Coach.
“I have never believed in keeping my children away from activities. But it’s not always easy finding a place where we can go as a family and feel comfortable that
both our boys are accepted. At Care2Run, however, we’ve found a community where there are no judgements and everyone can be themselves,” shares Raja Chinaya, Care2Run volunteer mentor and father to two differently-abled boys.
“My family and I really loved our trip to Malaysia! And we will be back. We loved the people, climate, culture, nature and all the delicious food,” Drs. Annette Zandvliet says of her recent trip here. The main reason Annette, a communications expert and registered nurse from the Netherlands, hopes to return though, is because of Care2Run.
For Thiyagu, Care2Run has been an enriching experience not just for the hundreds of participants who’ve walked through our doors over the years, but also for him, personally.
