About Campaignends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
Over the years, I have supported several causes including education, social mobility, and economic empowerment. I'm glad many of the organisations I have supported will directly benefit from my efforts. Finally, I've been inspired by so many everyday heroes who overcame their own challenges. Even this idea of a relay to rally people together to commemorate Singapore's Bicentennial and to do good at the same time inspires me!
I hope by taking on this personal challenge, I hope to inspire others to take action to support a worthy cause, to uplift lives, and to make a positive impact. So please support by donating generously! Your pledges will spur me on as I train up to run in support of the President's Challenge! (CEO, Emergenetics APAC, and Founding Member, Project Happy Feet)
