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.
Emily Lee, 49 who is visually handicapped, is a former para-athlete who participated in the 2015 ASEAN Para Games for goalball and 2017 ASEAN Para Games and 2018 Asian Para Games for tandem cycling. She is amongst the 10 special needs climbers taking part in the YMCA Inclusive Climb 2019 happening from 28 to 31 August, as part of the Y Camp Challenge that aims to strengthen people with special needs by building their confidence and independence. The YMCA Inclusive Climb 2019 also serves as a platform of advocacy for many of the special needs climbers, who wish to show others that they, too, are able to achieve great heights with perseverance and determination.
Dear friends, I am honoured to be part of the Relay Majulah. Together with the rest of the runners, we hope to champion progress in Singapore and in the lives of our people. It takes all of us to build a caring and inclusive society. Join me in supporting Relay Majulah and what it stands for. Do donate generously to help our community in need, so that together, we can rise as a nation.
