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.

As a Singaporean, I am always proud to be in this special place. I have travelled to many countries but I am always privileged to be a citizen of my country, where it is safe and there are ample of opportunities to develop and grow in career. We are a small country but with united families and communities. Life is full of challenges. Overcoming it is part of life. I am a believer that we have only life, so we should make it count. We should also cherish each and every moment of our life and live it to the full.
I am looking forward to Relay Majulah, running alongside a dynamic and passionate team of runners who not only have the same interest, but are also equally passionate for our society. Looking forward to completing our mission as a team and in upholding our Majulah spirit to make progress in the lives of others.
