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 without limits.
Nazri Nasir is a former footballer from Singapore and was the captain of the Singapore national team from 1997 to 2003. He led the team to the 1998 AFF Championship title and was a defensive midfielder known for his 'combative, hard-running and ferocious tackling style'. Nazri began his career with Jurong Town in Singapore's FAS Premier League in 1988 where he won the President's Cup in 1988 and 1989. In February 1994, Nazri signed a two-year contract with the Singapore Lions which went on to achieve the Malaysian League and Malaysia Cup double that year. Nazri retired as a player at the age of 37 in 2008. Today, he continues to be active in the community to inspire the younger generation to embrace sports and their passion.
I am currently a football coach and am excited to be part of Relay Majulah to raise funds and create awareness for President's Challenge. It is a challenge to complete 10km in 1 hour but I will give my best to achieve my mission - for a good cause. I hope our community can rally around our friends in need and donate generously to transform their lives.
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.
