Run for Education - Chạy vì Giáo dục

"Run for Education" is a special campaign organized by Teach for Vietnam. The campaign aims to spread the spirit of personal health care and connect the sports-loving community with education.

The program aims to raise 2 billion VND from both individuals and businesses. This amount will be used to continue building a comprehensive education system for over 4,000 students in 15 public schools in Quang Nam and Dong Thap, helping students access English, STEM, and entrepreneurial education.

With just 300,000 VND, each participant is not only improving their health but also contributing to building a future for 30 students in difficult border areas in Dong Thap and Quang Nam.
