Sit-A-Thon 2019

10,000 participants learnt about the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle and how unhealthy dietary choices may increase the risks of developing kidney failure at this year’s Sit-A-Thon. Held at Our Tampines Hub on the 24 and 25 of August 2019, members of the public participated in many meaningful games and activities that involved sitting on “seats” such as stationary bikes, bean bags and dialysis chairs.

Kidney ambassadors, who are our very own patient volunteers, also sat down with participants to share about living with kidney failure.

We also successfully entered the Singapore Book of Records for the most number of Sit-to-Stand repetitions performed by an individual in a minute, and the most number of repetitions accumulated by all participants in 8 hours.
