We often hear how seniors feel insignificant and useless. Through a combination of life knocks, deteriorating health and the disintegration of multi-generational families , this perception of self and by society has been entrenched. These issues loom large like formidable "mountains" in the lives of many of our seniors, which causes them to feel small, insignificant and resigned to living their later years with hopelessness and devoid of meaningful purpose.
Hence, GYM Challenge was birthed to reverse the current ageing perception. This event is an inter-generational nation-wide sporting event that will empower more than 100 frail and active seniors and their families and caregivers to climb up Mount Faber in Singapore and in doing so, make a bold statement that seniors can conquer their "mountains".
