About Campaign

Move to Beat Parkinson 2018 brings together People with Parkinson (PwP) and their supporters (e.g. family, friends and the general public), together for an eventful morning of activities that showcase the various types of movements that not only benefit PwP, but also improve their overall quality of life.

This event will also raise public awareness of Parkinson and help the local community better understand and accept PwP.

The theme highlights movement as an important way to beat Parkinson, which we want to encourage People with Parkinson to be active in.

Knowledge is power. Increasing public awareness of Parkinson helps reduce the stigma felt by people with Parkinson, which in turn helps to empower them to live out their lives to the fullest.

From hiring qualified physiotherapists to the upkeep and maintenance of gym equipment, your support will go a long way towards keeping the Singapore's only Parkinson Centre running.

Help us help them by supporting Move to Beat Parkinson 2018!

About NPO

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.
