Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) will be organising its annual community event "Move to Beat Parkinson" at the Toa Payoh Town Park on 8th April 2017 (Saturday) from 8am to 12pm.
This event aims to increase the awareness of Parkinson's disease, and bring together the local Parkinson community from People with Parkinson (PwP) to caregivers and volunteers, in order to encourage People with Parkinson (PwP) to be active and positive.
As movement is key to staying active for PwP, the programme will include various movements and activities that are beneficial to PwP in improving their physical wellness and quality of life.

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.
