Atomy Singapore plays a part in enabling people with disability excel in sports!
Atomy’s philosophy of ‘Live, Love, Learn, Care’ was shared with supporters of disability sports at the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) Charity Golf 2022 event on 4th August 2022.
Held at the Singapore Island Country Club, Island Course, the SDSC raised funds for its programmes which help individuals with physical, sensory and intellectual disabilities train and excel in sport. Recipients of SDSC’s support include five-time Paralympic gold medallist Yip Pin Xiu and Singapore’s first world archery champion, Nur Syahidah Alim.
Atomy Singapore is proud to contribute SGD$10,000 to this worthy cause enabling SDSC to afford resources such as specialised transport, coaches and equipment for its beneficiaries. Attendees at the fundraiser also received an Atomy goodie bag each at the end of this meaningful evening.
