The Running Club that Celebrates Neurodiversity

 The Singapore Marathon is unparalleled in Southeast Asia for its global participation, world ranking and experiences for runners. This year, for the first time, the 50,000-strong crowd will include a group of neurodivergent runners from Malaysia with special intellectual needs, who are part of the SpecialMe.MY Run Club. Founder of the club Bibo Low joins consultant developmental paediatrician Dr Rajini Sarvananthan to share more about how the initiative provides neurodivergent young adults with an outlet for physical activity, social interaction and opportunities to explore their potential.
