About Relay Majulah
Relay Majulah is a ground-up initiative to form a 200-runners team to conquer 2,000km over 200 hours (2-10 Nov 2019) to raise funds for President's Challenge and its 67 supported charities; and to commemorate Singapore's 200 years. It also aims to unite the community, for the community; and tell the inspiring stories of people with indomitable spirit, who live life to the full and live life without limits.

Aleksandar Duric is a former professional footballer. He is currently a Principal for Sport Singapore and ActiveSG Football Academy. Outside of football, Duric has been involved in charity work. In 2011, he ran the half-marathon race at the Standard Chartered Marathon alongside radio deejay Rod Monteiro and kinesiologist Dr Tan Swee Kheng to help raise S$12,000 for Sanctuary House, which provides foster care for children. In 2012, Duric drove a taxi for 12 days to raise $2,657 for The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund. He and his three kids also painted plastic doves that were sold in aid of the Dover Park Hospice in September 2013.

I hope that through my participation in Relay Majulah, I can inspire others to chase their dreams and to contribute to the society in any way. It is an honour to represent Singapore as a football player and a privilege to take part in Relay Majulah where we can help create awareness about President's Challenge and the role it plays in uniting the country, for its people. - Aleksandar Duric

About the Charity

The President's Challenge started in 2000 and represents a coming together of people from all walks of life, under the President's patronage, to help those who are less fortunate. It is the President's call to all Singaporeans to do their part to build a more caring and cohesive society.

While fundraising continues to be at the heart of President's Challenge, the campaign has gone beyond the giving of money to the giving of time, skills and talent for the less fortunate. President now seeks to play a bigger role in nurturing stronger communities by expanding support for programmes beyond the social service sector and to encourage the young and elderly population to be involved in community work.

Under the leadership of President Halimah Yacob, President's Challenge is looking into more customised and upstream support to help the most vulnerable change their circumstances through skills upgrading, capacity building and empowerment.
