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'm a youth worker from REACH Community Services, working with young people from marginalized and disadvantaged backgrounds. Together with my team, we provide programmes and services to see these young people discover their strengths and reach their potential in life. I believe that every young person deserves our attention because they hold the key to our future!
As a teenager myself last time, I went through much turmoil and pain of strained family relations, losing of my mom to cancer, battling with stresses at school. Coming out from all these seems to give me a different perspective about life. I'm proud to have witnessed so many young people not giving in to the challenges but instead are pushing on and not giving up.
Through my participation in Relay Majulah, I hope to raise awareness for the underprivileged and marginalised children/youths. I hope that we can be more sensitive and compassionate towards our young ones who just need a little encouragement and help from you and me. So please do support this cause 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
