About Relay Majulah
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.

Relay Majulah starts on 2 Nov 2019 and it happens to be my Mum's birthday. My mum played an instrumental role in our family, taking care of all the little details, and looking after all our needs - from ironing our uniforms to saving up for a second property in order to collect rental and to provide us better. It will be a good birthday present I can give to my Mum this year, by raising funds for the less fortunate, and doing my part in building a more caring and inclusive society in Singapore - living out acts of kindness as how she has taught me to be. I'm also one who is inspired by the daily acts of kindness I see around me whether in the office or on the streets. Even this very idea of rounding up 200 runners for Relay Majulah to raise funds and awareness for President's Challenge and its supported charities inspires me. Support me in my campaign to spread the spirit of kindness within our community, so that together, we can build a nation that truly cares. - Lawrence Leong

About the Charity

The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society.

Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. 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
entrepreneurship.

In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment. Visit http://www.pc.org.sg/WhoWeSupport to find out about the benefiting organisations supported by President's Challenge this year. 100% of the donations received go towards the charities we support.
