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.
When I was young, I was very weak and often fell sick during my primary and secondary school days. I was often excused for physical activities due to my condition. Only during my junior college days, I saw marathon runners running past my place, and I got inspired to start running. My deceased mother had loved to jog and walk every morning until 85 years old. Running is now my habit and my hobby. I recently ran 100km to celebrate Hwa Chong's 100 years. It was also my best 100km timing. I look forward to meeting other Relay Majulah runners who are running for others, for a good cause. Support us in our journey to make a difference, together.
