His humble contributions to the athletics fraternity includes community coaching - one of which was SAFRA Toa Payoh, conducting lead-up running clinics such as the Mizuno Women's Run in 2018 as well as conducting invitational coaching sessions for other running groups.
His passion in understanding the uniqueness in every runner and helping all to achieve a healthy and sporting lifestyle saw him through to attaining a coaching certification in 2005.
