The SATA CommHealth Community Walkathon & Carnival 2023 will not only serve as a meaningful community gathering but also as a platform to underscore the vital role of COVID-19 vaccinations in safeguarding public health. As Singapore continues its journey to overcome the pandemic, this event is a reminder of the role vaccinations play in this collective effort. In a commitment to inclusivity, the event will include activities tailored to children, adults, and seniors, promoting unity and educating the community on critical health issues.
Dr Kelvin Phua, CEO of SATA CommHealth said, “As a healthcare charity, we are here to care for the seniors and vulnerable. We hope that SataDay will stand as a resounding call to action and serve as an important reminder for all to undergo regular health screening, advance care planning and vaccinations. Seniors are encouraged to learn about osteoporosis and fall risk screening. During the event, we will also be encouraging Singaporeans to sign up for the Ministry of Health’s Healthier SG initiative. Together, let us make SATA CommHealth Community Walkathon & Carnival Day a celebration of health, unity, and the promise of a healthier tomorrow!”
