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.

I am a teacher with Ministry of Education and was a national representative for Traditional Boat Racing at the SEA Games 2005 till 2008. An unfortunate accident took away the lives of 5 of my dear team mates. I am proud to have been in the same boat with them and I will always cherish the memories we had together in and outside of the boat.

I am also very thankful to have stumbled into running, gradually progressed to marathon running and broke the 3hr mark 3 times since 2017, and have been getting a Boston Qualifying time every year since 2014. I am also very proud of my wife who is my regular running partner and a 2 times SEA games representative in the Marathon for 2015 and 2017. The birth of my 2nd girl started my journey as the 'Captain America' runner since 2013.

I have been inspired by many runners I have met and heard of and whose life stories ignite the fire in the human spirit. I am excited to be a part of Relay Majulah where many inspiring participants share how they have overcome the odds in the many challenges they have encountered.

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.
