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 have been in the financial industry helping families and business owners attain family financial securities as well as business continuity and contingency plans for the past 28 years and I am glad that I am still doing it. In my earlier years, I served in Lions Club and had taken on the role for fundraising for Lions Befrienders Ang Mo Kio. Having taken on the challenge to head the project and seeing it materialised gave me immense satisfaction especially when I knew that it would go a long way to help the beneficiaries. With Relay Majulah, I am able to come together with other like-minded runners for a meaningful charity event, running 2,000km in 200 hours continuously for a good cause. It inspires me to be part of the Team to raise funds to help the less privileged. Am a firm believer of charity work and always ready to lend a helping hand. I look forward to fulfilling my role as part of the Relay Team to complete my run within the time limit and to inspire the younger generation to have a big heart and reach out to care for those in need.

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
