Our Campaign Story

ends 03 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

Hello everyone, I will be participating in the SPD Ability Walk and Run
2021! Every runner has their own personal reason to running. Personally, running makes me happy because of the friendly interactions with the frequent park-goers in my neighbourhood.

Running for a cause would make my runs more meaningful, and also provide myself with the extra motivation when the runs get tough. I aim to run 50km, which is the last milestone of the event.

I would love to raise $500 for SPD as I believe these funds will be used to help enable and empower people with disabilities to be more independent and self-reliant. Any more than that would be bonus! Most importantly, I hope this campaign would raise awareness and make Singapore more accessible for people with disability.

Let's make a difference together!

About The Charity

SPD is a local charity set up in 1964 to help people with disabilities maximise their potential and be a part of mainstream society.

We are here to help children and youths with special needs reach for the stars and be the best that they can be through early intervention and educational support.

We strive to boost the self-reliance and mobility of persons with disabilities within the community, and we do so through therapy services, assistive technology and the support and encouragement of our care team.

Our day care programmes provide respite to families, making it possible for persons with disabilities to stay with their loved ones at home for as long as possible without having to resort to institutional care.

A strong advocate for inclusive employment, we train people with disabilities and work with them to seek suitable employment opportunities so that they can be financially independent and lead a full and engaged life.

After more than 50 years, we remain focused and committed to enabling people with disabilities.
