About Campaign

ends 31 Dec 2019, 11:59 PM
I am a full time working mum of 4 kids. I started running marathons since 2015 and to-date I have completed 12 marathons. I am very thankful for the good family support I get so I can focus a large part of my spare time on my trainings, and achieving what I never thought I could achieve in my running.

When I was approached by a running team mate to participate in Relay Majulah, my first thought was that it would be really meaningful to be part of this charity event. This event is a relay of 200 runners running over 2000km. It's a non stop event where runners are running throughout the day and night.

I get a lot of support from my family and in return I would like to give back to the community in whatever ways I am able to. I hope that through this fund raising effort, I am able to lessen the pain and struggles of the less fortunate.

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. Visit http://www.pc.org.sg/WhoWeSupport to find out about the benefiting organisations supported by President's Challenge this year. 100% of the donations received go towards the charities we support.
