Saigon Children’s Charity (SCC) will continue its annual sporting event to raise money for disadvantaged children by organizing the tenth Saigon Cyclo Challenge, which will be held at Taipei School in HCMC’s District 7 on March 13.
SCC says the event is organized to turn a challenge into a chance for local and expatriates to share their community spirit as well as to bring together thousands of spectators and supporters for a day of crazy sporting challenges and great entertainment.
The organizer says there have had 45 teams registered for the racing, and it expected to see some 60 teams competing in the funs and games event, which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support disadvantaged children around the country.
Unlike previous years, SCC marks its tenth anniversary annual Saigon Cyclo Challenge by inviting for the first time celebrities to join the charitable sporting event. Some actors and actresses are also planning to attend the event, including Ngo Thanh Van, Johnny Tri Nguyen, Thanh Thuy, Quyen Linh, Hoang Bach, Luong The Thanh, Hoang Phuc and Minh Beo among others.
SCC says it will add new features to the event to make it more fun and family-friendly, including a classic car display showcasing models like Mercedes-Benz Pagoda Sports, Citroen DS, and a Fiat 500.
The organizer expected to receive some 3,000 people at the event this year and hoped to raise the same amount as last year, some US$70,000. Proceeds from the Cyclo Challenge will fund Saigon Children’s Charity’s education programs for children in Vietnam from disadvantaged background.
Tickets for sporting event are available at VND250,000 per adult, VND150,000 per student or child and VND600,000 for each VIP.
