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.
As we commemorate Singapore's 200 years, I decided to participate in Relay Majulah to raise awareness on the importance of fostering racial and religious harmony in Singapore and to raise funds for President's Challenge. As a representative of Roses of Peace - a ground-up youth driven initiative that aims to build bridges between faith & non-faith communities, foster interfaith appreciation and nurture youth leaders of tomorrow - our aim is to raise awareness amongst young Singaporeans like myself, to care about the cohesive future of Singapore.
Just like how conquering 2,000km takes the effort of a dedicated 200-runners team, each and every Singaporean should remember that to achieve greater heights together as a nation, we need to work together harmoniously. I hope to encourage fellow youths to step up and do their part in building a Singapore that is culturally sensitive, appreciative and united as ONE.

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
