A seasoned athlete who has completed many long distance walks and represented Singapore in racing events across Asia.
On Sat, 1 Feb 2020, Mr G. Suresh Kumar (from Malaysia) and I will be attempting to complete 103km within 15-20 hours, breaking the current record of 35 hours in the Singapore Book of Records.
Parkinson is the second most common neurological disorder in Singapore, and is a lifelong condition that affects not just the mobility of its patients but other aspects of their lives too. Unfortunately, a cure has yet to be found.
I wish to take this opportunity to raise funds and awareness for Parkinson Society Singapore, a charity providing People with Parkinson (PwP) and their caregivers with the much needed support beyond those provided in hospitals.
Thank you for supporting me in my endeavor! - Mr R. Subramaniam
100% of all funds raised will be donated to PSS to further its cause in supporting PwP and their caregivers through therapeutic programmes.
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.
