Giving Week is a beloved tradition of Fulbright University Vietnam, organized annually in the month of May. It’s the time of year where members of our community and friends of the university can get together, learn more about each other, and show appreciation for all the dedicated support we have received in our journey with Fulbright.
One of the highlights of Giving Week is the Fulbright Fun Run, where runners can also donate and raise funds that will give wings to our students’ dreams and pursuits towards a better and kinder society. This financial resource will enable our budding change-makers (both undergraduates and graduates) to go after personal and professional development opportunities, as well as to carry out social projects that can serve their community in Vietnam and beyond.
This year, the Fulbright Fun Run will take place on Saturday, May 13th. The event offers free admission for participants of all ages to a 5km run around the Crescent Phu My Hung area that starts at 6:45 am.
Within the same day, as per tradition, the Fun Run will be followed with a series of exciting activities organized by Fulbright students for runners:
1. Mini-Concert, featuring performances by our very own home-grown musicians at Fulbright.
2. Giving Fair, where students demonstrate their capacity for innovation and creativity through a diverse set of community-engaged activities.
3. Art Exhibition, featuring students’ original artworks which will be available for a silent auction to fundraise for students’ visual art organizations at Fulbright.
4. Impact Project Showcase: a live exhibition of the positive impact that Fulbright University Vietnam has contributed over 30 years to the development of Vietnam through rigorous research, constructive policy dialogues, and capacity building at both graduate and undergraduate levels.
Through these students’ activities, participants of the Fulbright Fun Run 2023 will have a chance to explore and gain a deeper understanding of Fulbright – Vietnam’s first not-for-profit, independent, liberal arts university.
The event will also provide the opportunity for everyone to join hands in creating yet another fantastic year at Fulbright, where new generations of leaders and ambitious thinkers of diverse origin are continually inspired and nurtured to serve Vietnamese society and contribute to a better world.
