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.
About Linda Tan
15 years ago, Linda Tan fought a hard battle against breast cancer. To keep fit and healthy, she now exercises regularly by running and dragon boating. To her, running is therapeutic. Not only does it help her to relieve stress, it also allows her to reflect on her thoughts. Most importantly, she feels much healthier after she took up the sport. This run will be a challenge for her as it needs to be at a much faster pace than what she is used to. Doing this with other runners from all walks of life also makes it extra special for her.
"I am honored to be part of this special fund-raising campaign, and at the same time, look forward to doing my favorite sport. It is really heartwarming to see so many fellow runners taking part in this relay to help better the lives of fellow Singaporeans and I hope more will come forward to do so through various community efforts. Do support me by donating generously to support President's Challenge and its 67 charities - to build a brighter future for our community in need." - Linda Tan
