My SPD Experience

Every year, SPD conducts several physical events to raise funds to help people with disabilities of all ages maximise their potential and integrate them into mainstream society.

Since COVID-19 started, many of our events were cancelled and volunteering opportunities were also greatly reduced. Where possible, we pivoted and moved our events online. Because of this, we did not have many opportunities to engage or meet with you physically even to this day. We miss you and really hope to be able to see you in person again very soon.

   

If you have been a part of SPD in any way … as an  event participant, a volunteer, a workshop attendee etc we hope that you can take  time to set up a personal fundraising page to share your SPD experience and encourage others to donate and support our cause. We believe that stories of personal experiences are powerful and when shared, it will help others better understand SPD and how everyone can play a part in making a difference to the lives of people with disabilities.

If you do not know us yet but are keen to set up your own fundraising page, you may consider sharing about your experience on interacting with people with disabilities, your thoughts on why you support SPD or even your personal story on being a person with disabilities.

Do contact Calvin Lee at 6579 0780 and he will provide you with  step by step guidance on how to proceed.

Of course, should you be keen to make a donation, head over to www.giving.sg/spd/my_spd_experience. Thank you and stay safe!

SPD Ability Walk & Run 2020 - Virtual Edition
  • Dec 01, 2020 to Dec 14, 2020

 

SPD Ability Walk & Run is back, with a twist! Instead of a single-day event, we are holding the event virtually over a 2-week period from 1 to 14 December 2020.

While the pandemic has forced us to put our physical event on hold, but nothing can stop us from showing people with disabilities that they are not alone, and they will not be denied the help that they need. So, come join us in this SPD Ability Walk & Run 2020 – Virtual Edition.  Walk, run and give generously to support persons with disabilities in our communities.

This event is also held in conjunction with the International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) on 3 December 2020. Let’s all in our own ways do our part so that persons with disabilities can have equal opportunities to learn, work and live like everyone else, especially during these tough times.

Registration is Free

Individual Category

Free registration for the SPD Ability Walk & Run 2020 – Virtual Edition here. Share this good news with your family, your relatives, your friends, your colleagues, your friends’ friends, your pets or anyone that you can reach out to, and get them to sign up for this event too.

Team Category

Forest Gump ran 24,539km, crossing the United States five times before he decided to return home. How far can you run? Challenge your limits. Form a team of 4 runners and compete for the TechnipFMC Longest Distance Award. Clock the longest distance covered as a team, and win the coveted title and a Champion T-shirt each, personalised with your team’s name and total distance covered.

Give and/or Raise Funds

In good and bad times, vulnerable groups such as people with disabilities require support from SPD’s programmes and services. The impact of COVID-19 on the economy may extend for a long while, and funds are needed to keep the much-needed programmes and services going.

A donation is the most direct support you could offer, and any amount donated would go a long way in helping our beneficiaries. For instance, every $20 you give will provide meals over two days for one person with disabilities receiving day care. You could make a donation here.

As an individual or a team, you could also set up your own online fundraising campaign via www.giving.sg. Share your campaign on your social media and rally your family and friends to support your efforts. We will be giving our top fundraisers limited edition masks and name card holders specially made by our beneficiaries.

Limited Edition T-shirt

Get your hands on the exclusive finisher tee at only $19.90 and part of the proceeds will go to SPD.

Post and Share

Finally, post and share your running moments on your social media, tagging #SPDSingapore.
