Sandy Snakenberg, a 55 year old fitness coach and artist affectionately known as the Bubble-man, is in the intensive care unit (ICU) for an erratic heartbeat and some well-wishers are trying to raise funds for his treatment. Sandy has been residing in Singapore for 14 years and has a soft spot for special needs children. Sandy is also the former world record holder for 24 hours non stop skating.

Sandy also brought honour to Singapore by breaking a Guinness World Record by being part of a six-men-team to achieve greatest static cycling distance in 24-hours. His team cycled a total distance of 1,425 km, cycling at an average pace of 59.38 km/h over a 24-hour period in the year 2009.

One of his well-wishers who took to Give Asia to raise funds for his medical treatment, Jerome Poudevigne, described Sandy as a “man with a big and beautiful heart has been touching and transforming lives of many of us in Singapore for over a decade.”

Jerome further said how Sandy had personally made a difference in his life in appealing for donation. “He had not only taught Jean-Sebastien Choo (Jerome’s son) how to speedskate and transformed his physique, but carried me through the darkest hours of my journey with my autistic son during puberty!”
