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.
Having been diagnosed with thalassemia minor and flat foot before I entered into National Service requires me to stop doing cardio- focus exercises like running. Ironically, it's through running all these 17 years that helped better my condition and keep me fitter than before.
In commemoration of our country's 200th, I am thrilled to give back to the community at large by taking part in Relay Majulah to raise funds for President's Challenge. Through my small individual effort, I hope to do my part to better fellow Singaporean's lives. Individually we may not count much but collectively we hope to show the world what it means to be a Singaporean - people who truly love and care for one another. I also hope to inspire more people to take up sports for a healthy lifestyle and to spread love and joy to the needy, so they know they never walk alone.

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.
