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.
Mohammad Halil Bin Ngah is the founder of the Climb Asia Group. He captained the National Speed Climbing squad at the Singapore Climbing World Cup 2002 and has been actively climbing since 1994. Halil has travelled far and wide, climbing some of the world's best crags and peaks, competing against some of the world's best climbers. In 2014, he completed his project, Climb Central, located at the Singapore Sports Hub.
I am a passionate Mountain Sports enthusiast (rock climbing, mountain biking and skiing). I have been blessed so far with good timing and fortunes to turn one of my passions, rock climbing into a thriving business by setting up Singapore's very first commercial rock-climbing gym in 2003. Since then, the group now operates 15 climbing gyms and related businesses across Asia from The Philippines to Australia to India.
Through my participation for Relay Majulah, I hope to inspire other folks to conquer their personal battles either physically or mentally.
