The 13th Saigon Cyclo Challenge, an annual event that raises funds to provide educational opportunities for disadvantaged children, will be held on Sunday morning, March 10 at the Crescent area in HCM City’s District 7.

The annual event will feature a cyclo race, a cyclo deco challenge, a grand charity bazaar and many fun attractions including cheerleading teams, kids’ activities, magic shows, lucky draws as well as free food and drinks.

Saigon Children’s Charity (SCC), the main event organiser, has said that eight teams will join the Cyclo Challenge: HSBC, Hoang Long Hoan Vu, TNK Viet Nam, Crown, Giant, Pizza Hut, YanTV/YanNews and SCC All-Star.

The first prize is a trip to Sailing Bay Resort in Mui Ne, a voucher from Dae Jang Gum Restaurant and tickets to the Galaxy Cinema.

By purchasing a raffle ticket, families and individuals that attend the event can contribute to the fund as well as give themselves a chance to win wonderful prizes, including an urban bicycle from Jett Cycles, vouchers from Pandanus Resort at Mui Ne and many promotional vouchers.

Every year, SCC supports more 3,500 children through key activities, including building new schools and upgrading old existing classrooms, creating green learning environments, supplying learning accessories to poor students as well as conducting training courses in English, computer, art, photography, hairdressing and hospitality.

Last year, the event raised more than VND700 million (US$34,000).
