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 Managing Partner of a Multi-Family Office, and am proud to be from Singapore, a small but impactful country. I had completed my University studies in a foreign land and in a foreign language, launched my career in a foreign country without any business connections; despite the challenges, I have managed to find my way through life's obstacles.
In joining Relay Majulah, I aim to bring more awareness and help for children from vulnerable families. While many children are born with the privileges a first-world country may bring, many more fall through the cracks. Some children endure unfortunate family situations, with no control over their circumstances. Some parents cannot afford education or enrichment programmes that are vital to their kids' growth and progress in life. I hope to make a difference for these children and their families in need, because I believe all children should be given a chance to receive relevant education and training.
I hope to make a positive change in the lives of others. Please support me by donating generously.

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
In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment.
