Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Le Khac Nam said the event aimed to encourage locals to do physical exercise so as to improve their health, especially when the COVID-19 pandemic remains complex.

Nearly 2,000 people joined the Olympic Run Day for Public Health in the northern city of Hai Phong on October 25.

At the event, the municipal committee of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union also received VND 440 million (nearly USD 19,000) donated by local organizations and individuals to flood victims in the central region.
