Years ago, I got involved with the scourge of addiction. Those were the darkest and most trying part of my life. I was very fortunate to have survived and am grateful to have been given a second chance at being a positive influence in society again. At the age of 52, even an ordinary delivery man like me with a checkered past of addiction can have a second chance at life. I hope to inspire my friends and loved ones around me, that as long as you have love and belief, anything is possible. It is very humbling that I have been given the privilege to be part of Relay Majulah. Support me in advocating for second chances for many in our society.
About the Charity
The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society. 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 entrepreneurship. 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.
