As fellow Singaporeans, we are proud to be participating in Relay Majulah which is a ground-up initiative to form a 200-runners team to conquer 2000km over 8 days in support of President's Challenge. We believe in the power of unity and as we take each step, we hope to touch the heart of each and every one to step forward and join us for a good cause. Regardless of race or religion, we are ONE Singapore.
Growing up in a single parent family with a sole breadwinner (our mother) is by no means an easy feat with 6 kids. Our bond has always been strong with our mother as the pillar of strength.
In November 2008, when a special needs child with rare disorder came into our lives, we were informed that statistically, children with such conditions do not live beyond the age of 4. However, our sister Mary never gave up hope, staying positive, believing in God and His works. Today, not only is the family coping well with child, she is also supporting other families who are in the same journey.
When our youngest sister was struck with stroke (raptured aneurysm) on September 2017, it was a very difficult time for us. As we can only rely on God's miracles, we prayed and can only be a source of strength and comfort to each other. Life is what you make out to be. And remember you are not alone in your journey.

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
