Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


The Colour Socks Parade is an annual event organized by MINDS to celebrate Persons with Intellectual Disability (PWIDs). Through education on intellectual disability and interaction with our PWID friends, we hope for more people to see the talents and abilities of PWIDs and to build a truly inclusive community.

As the nation continues its journey to a Healthier SG – helping Singaporeans take steps towards better health, our PWID friends are not left behind. Through sports play, we hope to encourage PWIDs to adopt an active and healthy lifestyle, which will improve their quality of life and enable them to hold a job and sustain employment for independent living.

A Virtual Challenge allows you to participate and clock your hours at any time and place, and at your own convenience instead of gathering at one event location on a specific date and time.

You are required to clock your duration using the Strava / Garmin / Fitbit / HUAWEI Health Kit app between 1 April 2023, Saturday, 0000hrs to 30 June 2023, Friday, 2359hrs.

We welcome everyone to join us in The Colour Socks Parade!

Children should be always accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian.  For seniors, please ensure that you are medically and physically fit and consult a medical doctor if you feel unwell.

Do complete the challenge at your own pace (over the 60 days) and take all appropriate safety and health precautions.
