It is my pleasure to be part of the 200 runners in Relay Majulah covering 2000km over 200 hours on 02-10 November 2019 to raise funds for the President's Challenge and its 67 supporter charities.
Running has always been my passion. I have been working as an Senior Associate Executive in KK women's and Children Hospital (KKH) since 2013 in Department of Child Development. Our department specialises on pre-school children with Autism, ADHD, special needs with developmental growth. Children with special needs take long term consultation and different therapy treatments individually. This impact not only the children, also the family members mentally, physically and financially challenges.
I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute my part and to raise funds for the campaign. I hope to create awareness for social causes. Your kindness and generosity do make a difference to their lives. Let us bring light and happiness to the less fortunate. Thank you so much for your kind donations.
