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.

As farmpreneurs or entrepreneurs, we are constantly looking out for the tipping point for our businesses or life in general. But as the going gets tougher, the tough gets going. At the end of the day, it is the positive spirit in us, the support of our colleagues, families and friends that motivates us to continue the journey. This is also the reason why I am taking part in Relay Majulah - as an act of solidarity for our community in need to know that we are alongside them, we are with them - in life's journey. May we continue to come as ONE community to build OUR community. - Kenny Eng
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.
