Muhammad Sallehan's Story
Sallehan is a full time regular with Singapore Civil Defence Force. His late daughter's diagnosis with brain tumour in September 2016 hit him and my wife very hard. Being the caregivers, it was a challenge for him to cope between being the sole breadwinner (as a junior officer in Singapore Civil Defence Force) and family, as well as their emotional well-being. Nevertheless, this was nothing to be compared to the battles that his late daughter had fought through till her sudden passing in October 2017.
Today, it is her fighting spirit that continues to serve as his source of inspiration and strength in life, for instance, his comeback races these days.Today, he has completed more than 35 full marathons and ultramarathons, including the Craze Ultra 100 miles race in Nov 2018. He is excited to be a part of Relay Majulah where many inspiring participants share how they have overcome the odds in their life. Last but not least, growing up and living peacefully as one in the multi-racial society is the best thing to happen in this country, making himself a proud Singaporean.
