Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS)’s annual outreach event is back! “Move to Beat Parkinson” returns in PSS’ inaugural virtual charity run in celebration of our 25th Anniversary!
Join us as an individual or gather your family and friends in groups of 2 to 5 to complete either 25km, 50km, 100km or 250km in support of People with Parkinson in Singapore.
Regular exercise is key for People with Parkinson (PwP) to help them maintain their balance, mobility, and ability to perform daily activities. So come encourage PwP to stay active and positive! Run, jog, or walk the distance at your own time, own pace, and remember to use the hashtag #PSS25for25 on social media to show your support for our local Parkinson community.
Cheer Them On!
Many of us easily take the blessing of being able to run, jog and walk for granted, whilst People with Parkinson (PwP) make a lot of effort to run, jog and walk.
The second most common neurodegenerative disorder in Singapore, Parkinson is long-term and causes difficulties in initiation, coordination and control of movements such as standing up and walking. Imbalance and falls are also common and may lead to injuries. As movement becomes difficult, PwP are therefore prone to become inactive, resulting in declining strength, joint flexibility and fitness levels.
There is currently no cure for Parkinson, but staying active and regular exercise on top of medication, healthy diets, staying hydrated and getting adequate sleep are ways People with Parkinson can improve their health and well-being, preserve physical function, ease symptoms and enhance the quality of life.
Join us in cheering PwP on as they face their daily challenges on their Parkinson journey.
Your generous donations will help us continue providing physiotherapy classes as well as other exercise classes such as adapted kickboxing, Tai Chi, yoga, and many more socio-recreational activities to better serve the local Parkinson community.

What is a Virtual Challenge?A virtual challenge is a race that you can complete at your own pace and time.
Virtual challenge works exactly the same as any other type of sports events (e.g. running or cycling) but the difference is that the entered race can be completed at any location, either outdoors or indoors on a machine.
All you have to do is register for a race and provide evidence that you have done it. The evidence can be a screenshot of your running/fitness app, a photo of the machine screen etc. Do check out specific instructions of the event you join for more information.
Virtual races are a great way to stay fit and active all year round, run for good causes and get awesome medals and other entitlements for your participation!
