On November 6, Brain Tumour Society (Singapore) (BTSS) will commemorate Brain Tumour Awareness Day, to raise awareness about brain tumours and cancer. Join in the meaningful cause and put your best cap forward to help raise $100,000 for the BTSS Welfare Grant. The grant aims to provide financial assistance to families of brain tumour patients. BTSS is hoping to rally 500 participants to be in their caps or hats to make a mark. Customised caps will be retailed at $15 each through Facebook and at the event.

Other exciting programmes lined up for the day include:

  • A larger-than-life size cranium set-up with facts about brain tumours and cancer
  • Brainy Car Rally, where 40 supercars from the Lamborghini Club will be giving joyrides from beneficiaries
