About Campaignends 31 Jul 2018, 11:59 PM
The inaugural National Deaf Games was launched in early March 2015. The entire event drew a record of 143 participants for the three sports: Badminton, Bowling and Futsal. The guest-of-honour, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, graced the Opening Ceremony of 1st National Deaf Games at Jurong East Sports Cultural Centre.
The second edition of National Deaf Games was a success with a record of 187 participants mostly from the local Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. Two of them, Adelia Naomi Yokoyama and Kimberly Quek Hwee, were selected through our talent identification system and represented Singapore at the Deaflympics 2017 where they won the first Gold and Bronze medal at the Women Master event Bowling. It was the first Deaflympics medal for Singapore.
DSA continues to organise the multi-sport events annually. The event is a platform to give opportunities for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community to compete amongst themselves through fun and games in their favourite sports and to encourage higher participation in physical activities which promotes healthy lifestyle.
We appeal for your donation and your generous support to this cause so that we shall continue the promotion of National Deaf Games yearly.
We are the Deaf Sports Association (Singapore), DSA, and the uniquely national body for sports related to deaf community. Our vision is to help them realise their fullest ability through sports as part of social integration, character building and health lifestyle. We organise multi-sporting event where the deaf and hard of hearing compete amongst themselves through fun and games. We scout talents and support the elite training programme to prepare them for overseas games. Since we do not get financial support from the government and its agencies such as Sport Singapore or even from the Singapore Disability Sports Council, your kind donation is greatly appreciated.
