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.
After my O Levels, I took up the Diploma of Business and Social Enterprise at Ngee Ann Polytechnic. Taking on this diploma wasn't just an education certification for me to attain. It is also me embarking on a journey to make differences in the lives of others. From there, my journey includes being part of the leadership for a community service club (Leo Club), started my own social enterprise: Camp Hiro and was a Youth Corps Singapore Leader.
On top of serving full time in the Underwater Demolition Group in the Naval Diving Unit as part of my National Service now, I am also spearheading a non-profit organization, Movement Of Inclusivity. We advocate for a more inclusive Singapore. In addition to that, am also an active grassroots leader in the Yew Tee Constituency and spend my Sundays paddling in a differently abled dragon boat team named 'Different Dragons'.
I'm motivated by the challenge and the meaning behind Relay Majulah. Through this run, I hope to raise more funds to support charities in uplifting lives of our community in need.

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.
