Imagine not being able to improve your fitness, or slowly lose the ability to perform basic tasks like walking or raising your arm, no matter how hard and how long you try.

Or put yourself in this situation: your child slowly losing the ability to run, then to walk, and eventually being forced to sit in a wheelchair for the majority of his/her life.

These are the common symptoms experienced by those affected by Muscular Dystrophy (MD). Unfortunately, MD usually arises in children at a very young age, taking away the fun and excitement that usually goes along with childhood. MD is also an inherited degenerative disease, which means it only gets worse as time passes and has no known cure.

The project,The Ironman in You, is spearheaded by a team of youths in their 20s who are hoping to make a difference.

It is an initiative to raise awareness and funds for those who are affected by Muscular Dystrophy (MD) in Singapore. The primary beneficiaries are individuals and their caregivers who are currently being supported by Muscular Dystrophy Association Singapore (MDAS).

While raising awareness for MD in Singapore, we aim to raise S$100,000 within the timespan of about 2 months from 01 May 2021 to 30 June 2021.

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.

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.
