Teachers pedal through the night for charity

This weekend, two teachers from BIS HCMC will join 22 executives from the British, Vietnamese and International business community in cycling through the night, for 24 hours, in an effort to help raise funds for Newborns Vietnam.

The event, called Bright Lights, will require each participant to pedal consistently on a static bike for one hour each, keeping the Caravelle Hotel sign on Dong Khoi Street illuminated. The cycling will take place in the Champagne corner of the hotel, and will be completed by national film icon, Kim Ly. The star of the epic action romance Huong Ga is inspired by the cause and will be the final cyclist of this event.

In Vietnam, about 60% of under-five deaths are newborns who are in the first month of their life. But most newborn deaths are preventable.

The target of the event is to raise $10,000, and with it Newborns Vietnam will bring UK university and hospital specialists to Vietnam to train and work with Vietnamese nurses to drive improvement in survival chances of pre-term and sick newborns. The work that has already been undertaken in Da Nang Hospital for Women & Children over the last three years is already making a big difference, with neonatal mortality reduced by half.

Over the last few years Newborns Vietnam and Cycle a Difference Vietnam challenges have raised over $600,000 and as many as 92 cyclists from around the world have clocked over 115,000km. This is another spectacular commitment from individuals taking on an endurance challenge for a great cause.
