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 former search and rescue helicopter pilot; and was part of the SAF Humanitarian and Relief mission to Aceh following the Boxing Day Tsunami. We sent in food, water and medical aid to the villages with our helicopters. I am currently a planner for Airport development
I am inspired by people who bounce back from the brink of death or failure, the indomitable human spirit. I am also proud and honoured to be a citizen of this progressive nation. I am participating in Relay Majulah to help raise funds for President's Challenge and its supported 67 charities; and hope that our community in need can receive more help and perhaps be inspired to pick up running as a sport too. I will be running 20km under 2 hours and will need to push myself hard in the lead-up training to conquer this challenge. Support me by donating and together, let's be the change we want to see. - Poh Li San
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.
