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 a Nurse Clinician and yes, I battled together with rest of healthcare sector colleagues at the frontline in 2003 when SARS happened, and we pulled through together as a country. I am proud to be a Singaporean and I hope to share with the younger generation my experiences to make them appreciate our country more. I also love to share my passion of running with other people to motivate them to a healthier lifestyle, and of course, to run for a good cause as well. I am an advocate for barefoot running!
Am blessed to be part of Relay Majulah team to raise awareness for the social causes in our society and to raise funds to support charities under President's Challenge. It is my honour to be able to contribute to the less fortunate and hope we can inspire more people to come forward to make a difference, together.
