About Relay Majulah
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 to commemorate Singapore's 200 years. It aims to unite the community, for the community; and tell the inspiring stories of people with indomitable spirit, who live life without limits.

Since young, I have been always falling sick and I always envy others who are always able to run about, play and are healthy. Hence, when I was in Secondary school, I joined the scouts to strengthen my fitness. When I was in the army during BMT, I wanted to go to OCS but when I was sent to SISPEC (now known as SCS), I was very disappointed. But that did not stop me from giving my best to the country. I did in the end, crossed over to OCS after the Basic Section Leader Course, to then be eventually commissioned as the Sword of Merit (Top 5 %). There are many people who inspired me throughout my life including my granny who always tells me that if it's possible for others, it's possible for me. There are so many people who were born without limbs and yet with their indomitable spirit, they are able to do so much more. I am grateful to be part of Relay Majulah as it is for a good cause and am looking forward to meeting fellow runners who are all wanting to continue back to our society, our homeland.

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. Visit http://www.pc.org.sg/WhoWeSupport to find out about the benefiting organisations supported by President's Challenge this year. 100% of the donations received go towards the charities we support.
