About Campaignends 20 May 2018, 11:59 PM
MDAS provides programmes, services and subsidies to maximise the quality of life of its beneficiaries. One way to improve the quality of life of its beneficiaries is to promote the importance of sports; its beneficiaries enjoy weekly sports sessions, subsidised heavily by MDAS.
This year, the 24 Hour Static Kayaking Challenge is back for its 6th edition. It will be held on the 19-20th May at the Star Vista, and we need your help to make our efforts go further!

About the Charity
The Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore), MDAS, is a non-profit social service agency that empowers persons with Muscular Dystrophy and their families through programmes and services. MDAS is a full member of NCSS and a registered charity with IPC (Institution of Public Character) status.
Since our inception in March 2000, our mission is:
- To provide care and support to people with Muscular Dystrophy;
- To provide health and public education on Muscular Dystrophy;
- And to support medical research on Muscular Dystrophy
Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a group of genetic physical conditions characterised by muscle-weakening and contractures. Persons with MD face challenges with activities of daily living, from flipping a page in a book, to toileting and bathing. Many persons with MD have to rely on mobility aids, especially a motorised wheelchair, in order to commute. There is currently no known cure for MD.
Your generous donation will go towards supporting MDAS's operating expenditure in providing programmes, services, all supporting costs for over 500 beneficiaries and sustain its operating activities.
