July 25 charity run to helps kids suffering from cancer and those in remote communities in the northern mountains.
A charity fun run called Connecting Vietyouth will be held at Hang Day Stadium in Hanoi on July 25, with around 1,000 people expected to take part. Unlike a normal run there will also be different types of obstacles to get around on the course, such as car tires, ropes, water balls, and colored powder.
The run aims to connect people regardless of their background in the name of charity. All proceeds will be used to support children at the Vietnam National Cancer Hospital and children in the remote northern mountains. Ms. Nguyen Cao Ky Duyen, Miss Vietnam 2014, will be one of the participants.
Connecting VietYouth is an annual project including physical and volunteer activities. It was founded by Global Shapers Community - Hanoi Hub, the Vietnamese Student Association in the UK (SVUK), the Vietnamese Student Association in the US, and VEOXBRIDGE.
