Saigon Children’s Charity is planning to organise at least four special events in 2012 to raise funds for helping underprivileged children in Vietnam, including the cyclo challenge race, Saigon summer ball, and a cycle adventure.

Companies can get involved by entering as one of the 10 teams that will take on the Cyclo Challenge and sponsoring the event as a cash-sponsor with broad exposure, as well as by providing a prize for one of the winning teams or one of the hundreds of individuals who will pour their heart into the day.The Saigon Cyclo Challenge 2012 will return on March 10 at The Crescent in District 7 in Ho Chi Minh City, with an estimate of over 1,000 participants, spectators and children set to take part.

Saigon Summer Ball will also return on June 1, 2012 at the Sheraton Hotel in HCMC’s District 1.

As a romantic and classical ball to celebrate Mid-summer and to escape the noise and hurry for a few hours, the event will feature a sociable champagne reception, an exquisite 5-course dinner, and festive dancing.

The Charity Cycle Adventure comes in November 2012 in central Vietnam.

Due to its wonderful success in 2010 and 2011, another edition of the race will arrive in November, and is currently seeking sponsorship to support the event. 20 riders will join an adventurous but demanding bicycle ride from Hue to Hoi An – covering more than 150km in three days.

Riders will climb mountains such as the Hai Van Pass and brave strong winds along the Danang coastline.

And the best is saved for last, with the Corporate Challenge Days event coming from July-December 2012 in southern Vietnam.

A Challenge Day is not just a challenge of the physical diligence of participants to improve children’s learning environments, but also of company spirit in its ability to create awareness of the Saigon Children’s Charity’s projects.

One objective of this event is to ensure that previously constructed SCC schools are able to continue to provide students with learning opportunities in a quality educational environment. To this end, the Challenge Day programme seeks to supplement virtually non-existent maintenance budgets through corporate contributions and volunteer work as a means of ensuring the continuing functionality of the schools.
