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 never been a runner up till 5 years ago. I suffered a health scare that served as a wake-up call for me to take care of my health. I decided to embark on my fitness journey to take charge of my life. I went from not being able to run 2km to completing a full marathon of 42.195km in 10 months' time, to then venture into trail running and doing races of 50km, 100km and soon 100 miles. I RUN FOR RESCUE DOGS started as a personal initiative to raise awareness and funds for no-kill dog shelters in Singapore. I have personally raised over $80,000 in total to help the less fortunate dogs in Singapore.
As a Singaporean who is proud to call Singapore my home, I am very honoured to be part of Relay Majulah to raise funds to help the less fortunate Singaporeans who need our help and support. A little goes a long way and every dollar counts. Together, we can make our country a better place for our less fortunate countrymen. Our home, our heart, our Singapore. Let's all come together to continue to be a nation built with love, kindness and compassion.

Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. 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.
