Bridge Generations, Celebrate Life

Deteriorating health, loneliness and a loss of self-confidence have presented themselves as formidable “mountains” in the lives of many seniors which lead to mental and physical deterioration. 

In GYM 2023 we scale Mount Faber with seniors, declaring with action that no one is too old to have a dream.

This year, our Theme is Celebrate Life. 

Many of these seniors have worked their whole lives to help build Singapore and feel like they have been left behind and forgotten as they age.  

Through this event, we want to partner with them to climb Mount Faber but in the process, we also want to ensure that the seniors are seen, heard, honored and celebrated

This is where you come in.

We are looking for a group of enthusiastic, young volunteers with a heart to want to come alongside the seniors to make their day out awesomely memorable.

The GYM Challenge was birthed in 2018 to reverse the current perception of ageing. Deteriorating health, loneliness and loss of self-confidence have presented themselves as formidable “mountains” in the lives of many seniors which lead to mental and physical deterioration. 

In the GYM challenge, we scale Mount Faber with seniors, declaring with action that no one is too old to have a dream. Go for Your Mountain will be the crossing of a physical hurdle, proving to themselves and their world that they can still pursue their dreams.

For GYM2023, we want to declare that the family is an essential component in ageing well. We want to challenge you to sign up with your beloved senior and commit to taking on this challenge as a family and support  your seniors to pursue their dreams and age well.
