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 am a Risk Management Consultant and Lecturer, as well as a professional photographer and videographer. I am the founder of wow2wow.com and started running around 2013 after seeing many people participating at local races. However, I had to stop running for 3 years due to very serious plantar fasciitis (PF) issues. Now, I enjoy running longer distance, track & field (sprints and javelin) and keeping fit by working out at the gym. I train very regularly every week with several local running clubs (e.g X-Runners, Coffee Tea Runners, SMTFA and Team Bodyfuel). Seeing master athletes (especially those over 60 years old) running and keeping fit inspires me. My proudest moment in my life was representing Singapore in the Asia Masters Track & Field events and my dream is to win medals at Interntional events. I hope that all my friends in Singapore and Australia will help to donate towards this wonderful campaign so that our less privileged friends can enjoy life to the fullest and that their dreams can become reality.

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.
