VTV.vn - Approximately 3,000 young runners are expected to turn out for this year’s annual charity colour obstacle run on August 6 at the Hang Day Stadium in Hanoi, which promises to be bigger, better, louder and more colourful than ever.

Unlike a typical run there will also be loads of obstacles to manoeuvre around on the course including such things as car tires, ropes, water balls, and coloured powder, say the organizers.

All proceeds will be used to support children suffering from cancer and those at the National Institute of Haematology of Blood Transfusion as well as to build schools for remote communities in the northern mountainous province of Dien Bien.

The annual run is part of the Connecting Vietnam Youth project founded by Global Shapers Community - Hanoi Hub in collaboration with the Vietnamese Student Associations in the UK, US, Australia, France, the Republic of Korea, Hungary, Singapore and Veoxbridge.
