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.
As a police officer, I have seen all walks of society and therefore appreciate the vulnerability of lives. I had been deployed to disaster zones to assist in victim identification efforts. I witnessed how victims and families could find strength and resilience within their community amidst the most trying circumstances. I hope that in a small way, in peacetime, my participation will encourage fellow Singaporeans to come forth to show care for the needy community. Running has a special meaning for me. I run to keep fit and to recce the area of operations for major events. My favourite route is the stretch of the riverside from Robertson Quay to MBS, where I get to see a beautiful view of Singapore as I run towards daybreak. The scene reminds me why I wanted to be a police officer - to protect a home that can be easily taken for granted amidst peaceful times. Together, we can make a difference in our community and safeguard this place we call Home. Every dollar counts and goes into empowering lives. Please support me by giving your donation now!
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 entrepreneurship. 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.
