Our Campaign Story

ends 09 Mar 2019, 11:59 PM

Hi Everyone,

As some of you may know, I entered the lottery for the Tokyo marathon last year and was one of the lucky(?) few to win a place for the race on March 3, 2019.

My training has been slow and steady, but I need an extra incentive to go through the inevitable pain on the day. Money talks and raising funds for a good cause will help me finish the race.

All money raised will be going to the Parkinson Society of Singapore, a great cause, so please dig deep to help me help them.

Thanks in advance!
Barry

About The Charity

Parkinson is the second most common neurodegenerative disease affecting 3 out of every 1000 people aged 50 and above. Singapore's first community-based Parkinson Centre provides people with Parkinson and their caregivers with the much needed support beyond those provided in hospitals.

Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) was formed on 16 December 1996 by a group of doctors and caregivers to help people living with Parkinson. The society was registered as a charity on 28 January 2000 and is a member of National Council of Social Service (NCSS).

Since then, the Society has organized a number of programmes including annual public forums, therapeutic exercise programmes and social and recreational activities, aimed at improving the lives of People with Parkinson (PwP).

The Society also works closely with support groups in various hospitals and publishes newsletters and books to raise the awareness of Parkinson. In Singapore, three out of every 1000 individuals aged 50 years and above have Parkinson. The number of PwP is expected to go up in our rapidly ageing population.
