Our Campaign Storyends 20 May 2018, 11:59 PM
Paddling for 24 hours is a privilege, and opportunity and a way of doing our little bit for those who would need a leg up in life.
The 24 Hour Static Kayaking Challenge reminds us that if we are able to live life "normally", we have to use our strength to go the distance for others who need funds; to help persons with muscular dystrophy experience life with the most independence and freedom possible.
Persons with muscular dystrophy (a currently incurable condition which sees gradual muscle wasting and degeneration) have to spend most of their time seated in a wheelchair or lying down.
But, these people possess a great mental strength which I am in awe of, and a zest for life which we can learn from.With help and support from their family, from their friends, from MDAS, they can continue living with hope and determination, to cover the expensive care and transport costs.
24 Hour Static Kayaking Challenge began as a project to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Singapore. This year, we are organising this event once more, and we are aiming to contribute more, by raising funds through donations, and through shirt sales.
So let us show our support for MDAS, and for all persons with muscular dystrophy, by donating or supporting our event on 19-20 May 2018 at the Star Vista!
When the muscles fail, the mind takes over.
