Two former RDA Singapore riders represented Singapore in the London 2012 Paralympic Games. Maximillian Tan Chern, 24, and Gemma Rose Foo, 16, joined the RDA’s therapeutic horse-riding programme as students and quickly progressed, advancing to the independent rider programme.
With a love for competition and a sense of control when on the horse, the riders, who have Cerebral Palsy, had competed in numerous national and international competitions over the years. We, at the RDA Singapore, are so proud that each rider had performed well in the Paralympic Games, representing Team Singapore.
Our stars were warmly welcomed at the airport on 11 September 2012.
A Celebratory Victory Parade was held at the Gardens By The Bay on 15 Sept 2012. Over 100 supporters turned up to congratulate all Paralympians and to take photos with them or get their autographs.
Gemma and Max were among the Paralympians who spoke about their experiences at the Paralympic Games. Well Done, and Congratulations!
About 200 guests turned up at the Singapore Turf Club’s Committee Box and Casuarina Room on Sunday, 17 June 2012, for RDA’s Race Day. They included RDA’s horse sponsors, donors, volunteers, their families and friends. Besides the RDA Cup, which was the biggest race of the day, two other races were named after RDA’s horse sponsors.
Mr Patrick Choy, Senior Vice-President, International Operations of ST Telemedia Pte Ltd presented trophies to the Winning Owner, Winning Trainer and Winning Jockey of the ST Telemedia Stakes.
Mr Anthony Warner, CEO, Singapore, ICAP AP (Singapore) Pte Ltd gave away the trophies to the winners of the ICAP Singapore Stakes.
RDA is indeed grateful to all who had supported the event, especially to the Special Guest, Dr Lim Wee Kiak, MP for Nee Soon GRC & Chairman, Government Parliamentary Committee for Foreign Affairs and Defence, who presented the trophies to winners of the RDA Cup. RDA also thanks the Singapore Turf Club for the very kind assistance that it rendered in making the event an enjoyable one for everyone.
RDA held its annual Ball, themed ‘The Wild West’ on 2 June 2012. Guests, dressed up in outfits that matched the theme, started arriving at around 6.30 pm and were greeted by Phil and Joopi, two Shetland ponies kindly ‘loaned’ to RDA by the National Equestrian Centre for a couple of hours that evening.
The riding arena was transformed into a beautiful ‘ballroom’, which boasts the props and decorations, passionately produced by Pippa and her team as well as groups of corporate volunteers. Guests were treated to sumptuous cuisine from Goodwood Park Hotel, and there was beer and free flow of wine all around.
The Guest-of-Honour, Madam Halimah Yacob, Minister of State for Community Development, Youth & Sports, presented Certificates of Commendation to riders who have shown positive attitudes and a strong determination to improve upon their riding skills in the past one year. Congratulations to Faye Lim, Joshua Ng, Jireh Chua, Samuel Toh, Eliza Leong, Chuan Chern and Chelsea Mahan on their achievements.
Two very special former riders of RDA, Gemma Rose Foo and Maximillian Tan Chern, who are well on their way to represent Singapore in the London Paralympics in August 2012, were also present that evening to mingle with the guests. It was an inspiring moment when they graciously presented tokens of appreciation to Eileen Tan and Rosemary Georgina Oxley from the Spastic Children’s Association School who performed for the guests.
The event concluded with a ‘live’ auction and dance. RDA is indeed grateful for the generous donations and contributions, and thanks everyone present for their invaluable support for the charity event.
