The Brief 

  • To drive public awareness about the KDF Millennium Ride 2018 – an annual
    cycling event organised by EPIC Cyclist – to raise funds for the Kidney
    Dialysis Foundation (KDF)

  • To educate the public on the challenges that low-income kidney dialysis patients
    go through to pay for dialysis sessions, thereby encouraging the public to donate to KDF


The Solution

  • We created a media relations programme targeting traditional and online media

    The Process

  • Given that 2018 is the fifth year the Ride is taking place, the media has covered previous Rides, and many factual, informative angles have been
    used. To tackle the media and audience fatigue challenge, we decided to give the Ride a more

  • We emphasised on the cyclists' backstories – what motivated them to participate in the Ride and how the Ride inspires them as much as the diabetes patients. while reminding audiences on the key objective of the EPIC Cyclist group, and the target amount the ride aims to raise

The Outcome

  • Secured a total of 18 clippings including coverage in The Straits Times,
    Lianhe Zaobao, and CAN
