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 without limits.
6 years ago, I was diagnosed as being chronically obese, pre-diabetic and had a failing liver. After 10 years of irresponsible behaviour, my body was finally giving up on me. I decided that something had to change. I began this magical journey of rediscovering myself through fitness and leading a healthy lifestyle. In 2016, I began a crazy journey in the world of triathlons and within the first year, completed every race distance, culminating in my first ever Ironman race. I've learnt that enjoying the process is more important than the result. In 2019, I will be representing Singapore at the ITU World Championships in Lausanne.
At the age of 35 I was diagnosed with ADHD, Autism and Tourette's Syndrome. Despite medical advice to stop racing, I realised I could help to raise awareness for people with disabilities by my own actions. Moving forward is a choice and every race I complete is dedicated to all my peers with disabilities, especially those with the invisible ones. Don't give up on your dreams and and keep moving forward to discover the best version of yourself.
About the Charity
The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society.
Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. In 2012, under the leadership of former President Tony Tan Keng Yam, the Challenge was expanded to go beyond fundraising by including volunteerism and social
In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment.
