SINGAPORE – Not everyone can do a handstand, but Ms Roshoshanna Tang, 18, and four friends did not do just one, but “walked” 1km on their hands – for a good cause.

The event at a track that encircles the National Stadium on Friday aimed to raise $5,000 – a dollar for each metre covered by hand – for the children’s charity Club Rainbow.

It had received about $2,500 on Friday night.

The homeschooled student, who organised the fund-raiser, and the friends she met online – financial consultant Kayden Hong, 34; parkour instructor Koh Chen Pin, 29; personal trainer and fitness model Nicholas Joel Leong, 28; and estate planner Leonard Chiang, 29 – completed the distance on the 100PLUS Promenade jogging track in about 2½ hours.

Club Rainbow provides services for families of children who suffer from major chronic and life-threatening illnesses.
