Charity Fun Run is a annual event of British Business Group Vietnam

The annual event aims to encourage a spirit of fair play in sports, strengthen bonds between participants, in addition to raising funds for charity projects throughout Vietnam. Some of the charitable causes that runners sponsor cover many areas, including education, health care, and disaster relief.

Participants can either walk or run the five km race, whilst having the chance to enjoy a number of activities, such as music performances, flash-mobs, a cuisine market, and a picnic in scenic Ecopark.

Entrants will be able to attend a Lucky Draw that features an array of attractive prizes, such as a Yamaha Janus Premium, two Vietnam Airlines plane tickets to any destination in the world, vouchers with a value of VND20 million from ECCO, and a three days and two nights stay at any Vinpearl Resort combined with tickets from Vietnam Airlines for two people.
