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.

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.
