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.
I have been a supporter and a volunteer of Yellow Ribbon Project for over 10 years. Sometimes, it may seem tough having to juggle work and personal commitments while volunteering, but you know that it is time worth investing in when you know that lives have been touched and transformed.
I used to be part of the team that organizes Sundown Marathon and personally have completed 8 full marathons. My current job focuses on organizing events that support women entrepreneurship. Despite the hectic schedules, I have not lost my focus on my family and my faith keeps me grounded with a strong sense of purpose in life.
I am looking forward to being part of Relay Majulah, where I would be part of the 200 runners who will run to advocate for a better tomorrow and a brighter future in the lives of many in our community. Join us and journey alongside us to make the lives of our fellow Singaporeans, better and brighter.

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
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.
