Charity Fun Run to Take Place in Ecopark on November 3

A huge charity fun run will take place in Hanoi in just over a week.

On November 3, 2019, British Business Group Vietnam (BBGV) is hosting its annual Charity Fun Run at the British University Vietnam’s Ecopark campus.

Alongside members of the public, British Ambassador Gareth Ward and representatives from over 30 companies, their employees and families will join the 5th installment of the run.

There will also be a performance from pop star Dam Vinh Hung and a lucky draw with the first prize being a Yamaha Janus motorbike.

Last year, attendees raised VND 650 million to help multiple charities in Vietnam’s northern regions after 6000 people took part in the event.

Tickets for the event are available on Ticketbox. Saigoneer is a media sponsor of the BBGV Charity Fun Run.
