About Campaignends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
I suffered from pneumonia in June 2018 and was out of action for 6 months. After recovering from the sickness, I started my training again. It is a lengthy process that required a lot of discipline and determination. Today, I am back to running and am able to share my experience with other runners so that they may improve too. I am always passionate to share my running experience and knowledge with runners who have expressed interests to improve and progress. I am inspired when the runners show improvement and achieved good result (such as personal best during race) as an outcome of my sharing, training and support.
With my little effort, I hope to help the 67 charities under President's Challenge to gain traction from the public of their needs and eventually raise funds that they may be able to put into good use in future. Looking forward to be able to run with my fellow runners and support the charitable movement championed by Relay Majulah together. Support us and join us in making a difference in the world of our community in need.
