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.
Participating as 1 of the 200 runners for Relay Majulah is an opportunity to show my loyalty to this nation and I am truly honoured to be running alongside many fellow Singaporeans who love our country. The peace and prosperity we have today is built upon by many who came before us, and is what we in this generation, should never ever take for granted. I am running to raise funds for Relay Majulah in support of President's Challenge and its 67 charities to empower the lives of our friends in need. Let's join hands and hearts to support the underprivileged and be part of Relay Majulah movement where we seek to unite our nation, for our people so that they can have better tomorrows and a brighter future. - Joel Tay
