Xuan Sports Taiji athletes with Professor Elmie Nikmat at SASCO@Compassvale

At Xuan Sports, we believe that sports and wellness should be accessible to people of all ages, and that includes our cherished elderly community members. Recently, we had the privilege of participating in an inspiring event that exemplified the true spirit of active aging and community collaboration. The event was jointly organized by SASCO@Compassvale and the People's Action Party (PAP) Sengkang Central Branch, and it left an indelible mark on our hearts.


The event, held at Compassvale Helm, was a testament to the incredible potential of active aging activities and community support. What made it even more special was the presence of Professor Elmie Nekmat, the Branch Chairman of PAP Sengkang Central, who graced the event with his dignified presence.


The day commenced with a joyful shopping trip to the local market, allowing our elderly residents to engage with their neighbours and be a part of the community. It was heartening to witness the sense of joy and fulfilment they derived from this simple yet significant activity. It was a reminder that community involvement knows no age limits.

Following the shopping expedition, it was time for Taiji exercises, and that's where Xuan Sports stepped in. Guided by Xuan Head Coach of Taiji, Coach Jennee, and our talented Taiji athletes, the elderly participants embarked on a journey of gentle, yet revitalizing Taiji movements. Taiji, with its myriad benefits for physical and mental well-being, proved to be the perfect choice for our active aging initiative.

The heart of this event was not just in the physical activities but in the emotional connections, the laughter, and the friendships that blossomed. It highlighted that active aging is about more than just exercise; it's about promoting holistic well-being and fostering a sense of belonging in the community.

Xuan Sports is proud to have been a part of this event, and we are deeply committed to promoting active aging and community engagement. This event was a glimpse into what's possible when organizations and community leaders come together for a common cause. We are genuinely excited about the prospect of being involved in more Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities like this in the future.

This event was a resounding success and demonstrated the power of inter-community collaborations in empowering our elderly residents. It celebrated the rich lives and experiences of our elderly members, reminding us that age is just a number when we embrace the right activities and support.

As we look ahead, we are hopeful that more such events will continue to flourish, fostering not only active aging but also a sense of unity and camaraderie among our community members. The success of this event has inspired us to continue our mission of promoting health, unity, and well-being through sports and wellness activities.


In conclusion, the Active Aging event jointly organized by SASCO@Compassvale and PAP Sengkang Central Branch was an extraordinary demonstration of what can be achieved when the community comes together to celebrate active aging. Xuan Sports is dedicated to this cause, and we are eager to be part of more community initiatives that promote the well-being of our elderly residents. Age is no barrier to leading a fulfilling and enriching life when supported by the right activities and a caring community.
