Walk for a good cause at this year’s SPD Ability Walk & Run on Sep 3
The inclusive event by SPD will even see the participation of some persons with disabilities.
SPD is hosting its SPD Ability Walk & Run on Sep 3 to support persons with disabilities (PwDs), this time as a hybrid event.
Established in 1964, SPD is a charity in Singapore that seeks to enable PwDs of all ages to be as independent and self-reliant as possible.
There will be a physical event, Singapore River Trails, where participants can take part in fun activities and quizzes at their own pace on a trail spanning 4km.
Those who complete all the activities will stand to win a free tote bag at the end of the trail, and all participants can collect a customised bucket hat before the event at Clarke Quay Central Mall.
For those unable to join the physical event, there’s also the Virtual Walk & Run, which starts on Sep 4 and runs till Sep 24. Over the course of three weeks, participants can challenge themselves to walk or run up to 50km and unlock e-badges along the way.
Whether you take part in the Walk & Run, you can still donate to the SPD’s fundraiser. A donation as small as $20 will be able to fund a week’s worth of meals for a PwD receiving day care, and your contributions will help SPD alleviate the costs of physical therapy, specialised transport and developmental aid.
