VAS kicks-off the fundraiser for planting trees for the second time “VAS Green Day Run 2022”


The road running competition “VAS Green Day Run” was first held by VAS in 2019 to raise funds for planting trees in Can Gio Mangrove Forest and received the enthusiastic response and participation of more than 2,600 students, parents, teachers, staff, and partners of the whole school system. After 2 years the event had been cancelled because of the effects of Covid-19, 3,117 trees donated and planted by VAS are still growing well and ready to welcome new trees. Therefore, VAS officially launches the VAS Green Day Run event for the second time that will take place on October 30th, 2022.

Apart from the primary goal of the fundraiser, VAS Green Day Run 2022 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.
