Our Campaign Story

Let's do it together! This is our first family virtual charity run and we will love to join in cheering People with Parkinson on as they face their daily challenges on their Parkinson journey.

Our 2 teen girls and us aim to complete 250km together from 24 April to 24 July to run for Move to Beat Parkinson inaugural virtual run in celebration of Parkinson Society Singapore's 25th Anniversary!

The meaningful cause will give us the motivation to run far when we run together.
Please donate to help improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's Disease. Thank you!

About The Charity

Parkinson is the second most common neurodegenerative disease affecting 3 out of every 1,000 people aged 50 and above. Singapore's first community-based Parkinson Centre at Bishan 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 therapeutic exercise programmes, social and recreational activities and annual public forums, 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, there are more than 8,000 PwP and the number of PwP is expected to go up in our rapidly ageing population.
