Run For Orphans – The Lakes Race 2019

October 20, 2019 @ 6:00 am - 11:30 am

50/50 Trail Race in Ho Chi Minh

We believe that running is a chance for people to know their limits and challenge them. Giving this opportunity to children who have grown without parents resulting of a lack of self-esteem and confidence is a great way to prove themselves in order to become a confident adult who believes in his/her capacity. This race will always be about supporting and sponsoring orphans, so they can run, compete against other kids and have a wonderful memory. Besides, a small donation is also made to our Orphanage Partners. 

When a runner registers to The Lakes Race, he will get his RaceKit (T-Shirts, Medals, Bib, gifts etc … ), and he will become the sponsor for one Orphan, allowing the Organizers to buy Running shoes, socks, T-Shirts, Medals and all the necessary items to allow that child to run in proper conditions.

In our first edition, 125 orphans were invited to join the Kids Race, for our second edition the Organizers will invite over 200 orphans from 3 different orphanages.
