Jed Senthil graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business and is the Co-founder, RunONE & ONEathlete. He has spent the last few years in various outfits in the social and social enterprise sectors, including a stint in the civil service to gain exposure and hone relevant skills. He is also one who is motivated to reach out to youth through his acting journey with local television dramas, films, YouTube and theatre productions.
Jed Senthil was involved with the inaugural Youth Olympic Games and also volunteered with the SSEAYP International Singapore EXCO, SINDA Youth Club, & NYC's Young Change Makers panel. He strongly believes in giving back to society meaningfully, ONE step at a time.
I am thrilled to participate in Relay Majulah where our nation come together on a momentous occasion to give back to the community through sports. Having overcome poverty during my school days, I hope to give back to the society and inspire other youths to also give back.
About the Charity
The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society. Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. 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 entrepreneurship. 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.
