BBGV Charity Fun Run 2019

September is always a busy month at the British International School HCMC. It is our first full calendar month in the academic year and sets the tone for the months ahead. Whilst learning is in full swing by this point, another concern is making sure that our families feel settled within the school community. To that end, the BBGV Fun Run is an essential ingredient for welcoming families to BIS HCMC.

BBGV Fun Run 2019 - British International School HCMC

Since the first Fun Run which took place in 2000, the British Business Group Vietnam (BBGV) has raised more than VND11 billion to benefit charities throughout Vietnam. Over the years, more than 100,000 people have taken part in this exciting high profile event. This year exceeded all expectations with 13,000 participants, raising in excess of 1.2 billion VND to support charitable Vietnamese causes.

The BBGV contributes to projects which cover a wide range of charitable fields. They give priority to projects which meet the needs of disadvantaged children and the elderly and also to projects that have an educational dimension. The most recent projects they have supported include Scholarships for school girls in Hau Giang with Bong Sen Centre for Community Development, and Hue Help with their Swimming class in Soc Son Hanoi. For more on all of the projects that the BBGV have supported please click here.

This year it was fantastic to see more of the now famous BIS HCMC union jack t-shirts in amongst the crowds. For us, it is not only about contributing to such worthy causes, but also about bringing together the school community outside of the classroom and in the context of the wider community. Take a look at some of the images that were captured by you around our booth on the day.

The atmosphere on the day was electric, and with the run itself not being a competitive one, it was wonderful to see everyone going at their own pace and soaking it all in. 

Huge congratulations go to two members of the school community who did manage to place in their respective race categories and found themselves on stage collecting awards. Rens (Year 7) and Arthus (Year 11) both student-athletes did superbly and we hope that they can replicate their success at the SISAC Cross Country Championships later this year!

To everyone that came to support the event, once again, thank you for giving up time on your Sunday morning to play a small part in helping charities across Vietnam. We hope to see you all again next year! In the meantime, lookout for a recap of the event from the BIS Sofa!
