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.
It is my 1st time participating in such a long distance run. Definitely not an easy feat for me but I believe with will and determination, anything in life is possible. One of the darkest moments in my life was overcoming drug abuse and I am thankful that with the support of my family, the community and my faith in God, I was able to overcome and emerge a better, stronger person. I am glad to be part of Relay Majulah where people from all walks of life come together to make a difference and to build our nation, our homeland - together. I stand alongside many in our community who are in need, going through tough times and dark moments, to know that light is at the end of the tunnel and that you never walk alone. Support me in this campaign as ONE United Nation to support the less fortunate and together, let's show to the world what Singapore can do and what we stand for. - Kelvin Koh
