Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

I am a Taichi trainer at Parkinson Society Singapore since 2015. I'm touched by how the Parkinson's members, accepting their conditions and still very positive to continue to improve their health through the many courses and activities held at Parkinson Center. The Parkinson's Warriors have strong fighting spirit and are very close to one another.
From students of my tai chi classes to become friends give me this special bonding with them.
One day it was raining heavily and my thought was whether any students will turned up. Then one by one walked in, some were drenched by the rain, some came by wheelchair, it was a very, very touching moment for me.
There is so much joy in giving and watching the results of giving.
I am requesting my tai chi friends and friends to help me raise funds towards this campaign. Thank you so much.

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.
