About Relay Majulah
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 without limits.

I was introduced to mountaineering 15 years ago and gave myself an audacious goal of climbing Mt. Everest. It seemed like an impossible dream. Over the past years, I climbed various peaks around the world and had my fair share of missed attempts. But Everest was always in my mind and I continued climbing. A breakthrough around 2014 gave me the confidence to pursue the Seven Summits Challenge and I made good progress with the peaks on the list. I finally decided to attempt Everest in 2019 and realized my 15-year love affair with the mountain.

Underlying this story is a reminder not to short change ourselves on our dreams. It might take a longer route, a different route, or a redefined route, but it is your dream and you determine whether you are worthy of it or not. Relay Majulah is about the collective effort of people from all walks of life, coming together to make an impact in our community and bring some a step closer to their dreams. With your support, we can enable lives and bring someone a step closer to his/her dream.

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.
