VAS kicks-off the “VAS Green Day Run” fundraiser for planting trees

06/04/2021

In 2019, for the first time, VAS hosted a fundraiser “VAS GREEN DAY RUN” and received the enthusiastic response and participation of more than 2,600 students, parents, teachers, staff, friends and partners of the whole school system. Together, we have planted 3,117 trees in Can Gio Mangrove Forest. This positive result is the motivation for the VAS to continue to persevere with the goal of protecting the environment and sharing responsibility with the community and society through the return of the VAS GREEN DAY RUN this year!

Apart from the primary goal of the fundraiser, VAS GREEN DAY RUN 2021 is also an opportunity for the VAS community who are interested in sports and share the same concerns for environment protection to meet and connect with each other. To plant as many more trees as possible for Can Gio Mangrove Forest, we really need the accompanying support from all VAS staff, teachers, students and parents!

The event is held at VAS Sala Mega campus and in the Sala urban area.
