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.
I am the Chief Chef for Singapore Red Cross Home for the Disabled, which houses 100 residents who are unable to care for themselves due to various disabilities. Some are brought into day care to provide their loved ones with the assurance that they are well taken care of. However, there are also those who are without known families. Some of our residents have been there since they were children. Being a chef in a disabled home is totally different from the F&B industry and my dad always says 'help those who are is need' while you still can. This is also why I left Michelin-star restaurants overseas to serve food to persons with disabilities.
I decided to participate in Relay Majulah, joining forces with 199 runners comprising people from all walks of life to raise funds for President's Challenge and to help the less fortunate people amongst us. There are many people in our society who needs our help, our care and our concern. As fellow Singaporeans, we should stand by each other. Join me in championing change in the lives of others. - Glynn Maung
