About Campaign

We are swimming in support of systemic sclerosis, a rare but complex autoimmune disease that affects large areas of skin, blood vessels and internal organs. One of our patients suffering from this condition carries a small oxygen tank with her wherever she goes because she became breathless after the disease damaged her lungs. Despite her condition, she remains firm in living life to the fullest.

Inspired by her strength and resilience, her thirteen-year old daughter will be swimming laps with her mother's doctors and the SingHealth Senior Management team, to take a plunge to raise awareness on rheumatological diseases and to raise funds for rheumatology research.

We would be most grateful if you could support our cause by making a donation. Net proceeds raised from this event will go towards the Reverie Rheumatology Research Fund (endowed) in support of research initiatives in five Rheumatological conditions - Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, Systemic Sclerosis, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Spondyloarthritis. Funds raised will be used to expedite and fund novel research that will make an impact to patients' health. With our team of dedicated clinician-scientists, clinicians and research support professionals, we hope to accelerate discoveries and uncover cures to improve the lives of patients suffering from these conditions.
