We are MBA students from National University of Singapore (NUS). We are participating in the 7th Asia-Pacific Business Schools Desert Challenge this coming April - a hike of 70KM over three days in Tengger Desert, Mongolia!
This year, we take an initiative of fundraising for Youth Mental Health, in line with Goal 3 of United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Our slogan is "Desert Race - Racing against Depression". For each 1,000 steps we walk in the desert, we would donate SG$1 to the WholeTree Foundation and her Over-The-Rainbow youth mental wellness initiative. But we need your help!
