I Run For Parkinson Champions:
Team Parkinson

Our first at a marathon event, Team Parkinson comprises 9 brave Parkinson Warriors, along with 4 caregivers, taking up the challenge of completing 5km within the official cut-off time of 1hour 15 minutes. It may seem a simple task for running enthusiasts, but potentially a feat for People with Parkinson (PwP)!

"I have been running in marathons and this year, I thought I could make a difference and run for a good cause at the upcoming Singapore Marathon 2019. I wish to take this opportunity to raise funds for Parkinson Society Singapore, a charity providing People with Parkinson (PwP) and their caregivers with the much needed support beyond those provided in hospitals."

"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!"

"I am no different to any runners you get to meet near your neighbourhood or during races. As part of the run community, I do get opportunities to share my running experiences, encourage and motivate many others to enjoy this sport as much as I do. Running/jogging, in my opinion, has always been the easiest sport whereby you just need a pair of running shoes to hit the road. However, this is not the case for our People with Parkinson (PwP). Parkinson's disease, being the second most common neurological disorder in Singapore, is a neuro-degenerative disease that affects the mobility and quality of life of sufferers. In advanced stages of Parkinson's disease, Our PwP might require assistance from a carer to even carry out day-to-day activities. Unfortunately, a cure has yet to be found. I will be running my next full marathon at the Singapore's most anticipated race event - Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon to raise awareness and funds aimed to improve the lives of our PwP. I hope you could show your support in this meaningful cause with your kind donations and help make another difference this 2019!"

"I enjoy running and God has given me the gift of running. I hope to raise awareness for Parkinson through my participation in this race.I came to know about Parkinson and the impact on the lives of patients recently. It is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects a person's movement. Some symptoms include trembling in the hands, arms, stiffness of the limbs and body, slow movement and poor balance. Parkinson can affect the younger ones: about 5-10% of the 10,000 People with Parkinson in Singapore are those diagnosed between 21-40 years old, with the majority above 60 years old. Although there may not be a cure yet for Parkinson, I am believing that it will come soon and would like to do my part through my passion in running in the meantime."
