2nd NUS Economics Alumni Trishaw Fundraiser

The sky looked threatening and it did rain in the morning but by 5 pm, the skies cleared and at 7 pm, NUS Economics Alumni was off to its 2nd trishaw fund-raising event on Friday, 1 November 2013.  The Guest of Honour, Assoc Prof Zeng Jinli, represented the Head of Department in riding off in the first trishaw, accompanied by the president of NUS Economics Alumni, Mr. Daniel Lo.  Other Economics staff were there to support:  Dr Connie Chung, Dr Lee Soo Ann and Mr Chan Kok Hoe, who took the photos while running alongside the trishaws! Sponsors paid for the 30 trishaws rented for the event, and each trishaw raised $500 for the NUS Economics Alumni Bursary Fund, netting over $15,000 in all.  Seven undergraduates turned up, including some who were bursary recipients.  This Fund awards 3 bursaries worth $2000 each for three years of undergraduate study, based largely on need but also on merit.
