PhillipCapital Supports Children’s Cancer Foundation’s Hair For Hope
Phillip Futures CEO Teyu Che Chern and staff will be shaving their heads as a symbolic gesture in support of this movement.
Singapore, 10 July 2018 — The management and employees of the PhillipCapital group, together with their corporate partners and friends, will be shaving their heads tomorrow in support of Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF)’s Hair for Hope 2018. This is the first time that the financial institution is participating in this movement.
Hair for Hope is CCF’s signature fundraising event – the only head-shaving event in Singapore that serves to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer. CCF hopes to encourage at least 6,500 participants to join the cause and raise $3.6 million to aid children and families impacted by cancer this year.
“Phillip Futures would like to commemorate its 35th year of establishment. As one PhillipCapital family, employees, partners, clients and friends want to play a part in helping the children affected by cancer, whether by volunteering to go bald to spread awareness of childhood cancer and to assure children that they are not alone in their fight against cancer or to raise funds to help affected children and their families,” Mr Teyu Che Chern, CEO of Phillip Futures explained.
To support this cause and his employees, Mr Teyu Che Chern will be the first in line to shave his head as a symbolic gesture. “As an individual, I would like to create awareness for all cancer fighters. As a father of four healthy children, I would like to show support to cancer kids and their families who are dealing with immeasurable pain and and stigma. As an organisation’s leader, I would like to lead by example and play my part in support of this charitable cause.”
One of PhillipCapital’s employees, Mr Tan Choun Ping from Phillip Futures IT department, shared his reason for signing up as a shavee. “I have witnessed my family members battling cancer, and I am touched by the help they received from donors. I can therefore emphatise with the physical suffering and financial burden that cancer patients go through and I am eager to support this meaningful cause in any way that I can.”
