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 Financial Consultant and was very fortunate to be able to achieve my dream of representing Singapore in the 29th SEA Games in 2017 through dedication, determination and discipline. Yet, I could not have done it alone. Being a single mother and a full time Financial Consultant, I found it hard to commit to the training programme. Without the support of the running community, it would have been a tough and lonely fight to achieve my dream. I am inspired by anyone who embodies the 5 Ds of success - Discipline, Determination, Dedication, Direction and Diversity. Tough times never last, tough people do. Hence, I strongly believe that 'when people come together, magic happens'. This relay gives me an opportunity to pay it forward. To rally others together so that 'when we come together, we can help others achieve their dreams'. Nothing is impossible and I hope that you will donate generously so that together, we can help ordinary beings achieve extraordinary things.

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
