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.
Jerry is the Director at Singapore National Employers Federation. As a vivid athlete, he has participated in Ironman and running races since 2001. Giving back to the sports he loves, he was sea games team manager for triathlon and the current team manager for Swimming with the Singapore disability sports council. Jerry is also a volunteer/supporter for club rainbow (for children with chronic illness) and bone marrow donor programme.
I am excited and privileged to take part in Relay Majulah doing the sport that I enjoy for charity. I hope this campaign will encourage many others to step forward as a community and support those in need to better their lives. Whether through volunteer groups or charity or other means. Support me by donating and let's build a brighter future for many.
