Our Campaign Story

Join me in supporting People with Parkinson!
I am targeting to clock 250 km from 24 April to 31 July to raise awareness and funds for the Parkinson Society Singapore.

Some of us carry scars that are visible, others wage invisible wars daily, with a smile. However, I believe that each of us has the capacity to help in our own way.

For me, battling chronic nerve pain for three years has made every 'pain-free' day precious. Though I am still working on my healing journey, I give thanks for all the things that I can still enjoy and love to do, like cycling, which I started only two years ago. Staying active and positive helps me cope better and I especially love being out on sunny days, when I can gaze up at blue skies and feel the healing warmth of the sun.

Please donate generously so that the Parkinson Society Singapore can continue to provide support through their various physiotherapy and speech therapy classes, yoga, Tai Chi, kickboxing and other activities to help People with Parkinson. 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.
