I hate running but I have the ability to run, except for occasional aches no thanks to aging and gravity.
There are many others who may not have the ease of mobility, thus this time I am running for a cause.
I am running 100km for Move to Beat Parkinson - Virtual Charity Run 2021, in celebration of the Parkinson Society Singapore 25th Anniversary.
Parkinson is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder in Singapore. Currently there is no cure but staying active and regular exercise along with healthy diets can improve the health and well-being of People with Parkinson.

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.
