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 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.

Born bow-legged and flat-footed, I had to overcome my very poor physical ergonomics to be a regular runner to go on to be a finisher of 3 full marathons. I am CEO, Singapore Division, Parkway Pantai Limited, member of 2 school advisory committee, CDC District Counsellor, family with a young child without domestic helper and just started on a EMBA program and yes, juggling a very hectic schedule to squeeze time to train for Relay Majulah. For a worthy cause.

Coming from very humble family where both my parents dropped out from school in their early teens to support their family, I am extremely lucky to benefit from the excellent education system. I was awarded a government scholarship to study overseas which was beyond my wildest dreams. The subsequent advancement in my career and relative success were a result of our meritocracy based society.

I hope that through my participation in Relay Majulah, I can encourage more people to pick up running and above it all, for members of the society to continue to give back and lend a helping hand to others.

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.
