Patients who suffer from kidney failure have to go through dialysis which require them to sit for long, painful hours on a chair. Do you know how that feels like?
To raise awareness about dialysis patients and the challenges they go through, National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Singapore held its annual instalment of the NKF Sit-A-Thon at Our Tampines Hub from 24th to 25th August 2019. The EventNook Team joined NKF to bring the community a weekend of healthy living and exercise, with Minister for Education, Mr Ong Ye Kung, gracing the event.
This year, there were many sign-ups for NKF’s Sit-To-Sweat sessions where participants were engaged in a 50-minute long spin class with instructors. There were a total of 12 sessions held over 2 days.
How did NKF pull off registration for such a large scale event so easily? EventNook was engaged to provide an easy, stress-free registration system for NKF. We provided a whole package which included:
- End to End Event Management Software
- EventNook Onsite Mobile Kiosk Check-in System with QR code ticketing
- Onsite Instant Badge Printing
- Comprehensive Equipment Setup
- Onsite Event Day Technical Supervision
While members of the community were pedalling hard and sweating it out, with the support from EventNook, the NKF team executed a smooth event without breaking a sweat.
From the registration process above, the goodie bag packing was the bottleneck as the volunteers had to pack event t-shirts according to the participants’ sizes on the spot. The team knew this was going to be time-consuming, hence, they minimised the time used for check-in and name printing by engaging EventNook’s services.
We enjoyed being part of the journey to support a meaningful cause with NKF. We would like to congratulate NKF on yet another successful instalment of Sit-A-Thon 2019 and we look forward to working with NKF again!
