About Campaignends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
I am a Senior Sports Development Executive cum Fitness Coach. I combine my love for running and travelling by participating in various overseas running races. It is interesting to experience varied cultures and practices in foreign countries as well.
I wish to raise funds for this meaningful cause as this is something close to my heart and somewhat relevant to my profession as a trainer. As a trainer, I have encountered some clients with limited mobility and various health problems. The challenge is always to help my clients improve their quality of life via physical training. I am also intrigued by how Parkinson's disease affects the motor and neuro-muscular functions of the body. Just doing my small bid to make the life of patients suffering from the disease a little bit better! - Khen Kee Wei
About I Run For Parkinson
I Run For Parkinson is a new initiative of Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) calling for running enthusiasts to make their race in the upcoming Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2019 more meaningful by raising awareness and funds to support People with Parkinson. Making another meaningful first is the formation of Team Parkinson - a team of People with Parkinson and their caregivers participating in the 5km category!
100% of all funds raised will be donated to PSS. We are grateful for the support from our corporate partner, Lundbeck Singapore, for your sponsorship towards Team Parkinson's participation & training!
About the Charity
Parkinson is the second most common neurodegenerative disease affecting 3 out of every 1000 people aged 50 and above. Singapore's first community-based Parkinson Centre 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 annual public forums, therapeutic exercise programmes and social and recreational activities, 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, three out of every 1000 individuals aged 50 years and above have Parkinson. The number of PwP is expected to go up in our rapidly ageing population.
