It is an honor and privilege for me, to be part of Relay Majulah event, a network of passionate and people of all walks of life, who come together for a charitable cause, forging friendships from diverse culture, race, gender, age and nationality, making a difference to society we live in.
I hope through Relay Majulah, we can raise awareness, not only the importance of keeping ourselves healthy through exercise, but also the importance of the causes we are supporting in encouraging others to play a part reaching out to those who need our help. We, together as one, can always make a difference.
