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 started in 2000 and represents a coming together of people from all walks of life, under the President's patronage, to help those who are less fortunate. It is the President's call to all Singaporeans to do their part to build a more caring and cohesive society.
While fundraising continues to be at the heart of President's Challenge, the campaign has gone beyond the giving of money to the giving of time, skills and talent for the less fortunate. President now seeks to play a bigger role in nurturing stronger communities by expanding support for programmes beyond the social service sector and to encourage the young and elderly population to be involved in community work.
Under the leadership of President Halimah Yacob, President's Challenge is looking into more customised and upstream support to help the most vulnerable change their circumstances through skills upgrading, capacity building and empowerment.
