My childhood and growing up years were often troubled by family and financial issues. Studying hard and getting into good schools was believed to be the only way to a better future. I was fortunate enough to get through secondary and junior college years with bursaries and a financial assistance scheme. Hence when it comes to charity, I have a preference to help the kids. They had no choice over how they come to this world or which family to be born into. But we can help them in some ways or another, to make sure they get on the right path and secure a good future for themselves.
I started taking part in endurance events in 2012 with my company iFAST Corporation Ltd, with Oxfam Trailwalker 100km (Hong Kong) as the first. I went on to do Oxfam Trailwalker 100km in Sydney, Brisbane and South Korea. In 2017, I decided that I want to push myself harder and start working on more demanding individual endurance ultramarathons. With the support of iFAST, I wanted to see where my limit is. I went on to complete the Vietnam Jungle Marathon (42km), MSIG Taiwan 50km. In 2018, I completed Translantau 50km but for Transjeju 111km race, I DNF-ed at about 73km mark. Each race taught me valuable lessons. Not just the physical aspects, but the mental. I finally obtained my first individual 100km medal at Translantau 100km in March 2019. Now, my mind is set on completing Gobi March 2019.
