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.
About Irwin See
Irwin See, a former junior college teacher, started Irwin's Study, a tuition centre with heart and purpose, in 2009. 9 years on, Irwin also launched the social arm of the centre, The Seed Initiative, which funds and mentors promising projects that promote social good, as a way to give back to society above and beyond helping students in their work and school life.
"Having studied and travelled abroad, I've come to appreciate and love Singapore for the unique and blessed nation that it is. I've learned that much of the goodness that we sometimes take for granted is not always a given in many other countries, and for this, I'm proud and thankful for calling Singapore my home. Through my participation in Relay Majulah in support of President's Challenge and its 67 supported charities, I hope to galvanise my kampung of friends, students and even strangers to give to meaningful causes beyond our own lives and take our nation into the future, together." - Irwin See
