07/05/2022 – A beautiful Saturday that marked the beginning of Fulbright’s Giving Week 2022 with the Fun Run event.
After a year without out-door activities, Fun Run is a special occasion for the Fulbright community and allies to get together, join the run, enjoy fun activities, attend the exhibition and exchange their stories of changes.
Beyond the organizers’ expectation, Fulbright Fun Run 2022 welcomed the participation and generous support from those who are not only within the Fulbright community, but also from broader society. It gave us such courage and confidence to pursue our mission further, as our President Đàm Bích Thủy affirmed in her speech at the event “I wish this event will become an annual tradition for Fulbright to join hands with other communities to build an educational environment that nurtures a generation of change-makers to contribute towards the development of Vietnam, people of Vietnam and the world beyond our nation.”
Let numbers and pictures help Fulbright speak about the event:
More than 600 participants
256 people joining the run or walk
Nearly 1,000 kilometers achieved
30 art pieces, out of which 9 pieces sold at the auction and many prints and postcards purchased
7 stories exchanged at the “Human Library”
15 students’ initiatives at the “Giving Fair”
A good start promises more exciting activities with immense support from society during the rest of Giving Week 2022!
Giving Week is an initiative at Fulbright to bring our community closer, to appreciate each other’s passion and dedication for education, as well as to create a tradition of unity. Throughout the week, Fulbright community members join hands to contribute in various ways, from non-material forms, such as volunteering, writing a note of gratitude to one another, exchanging encouragement and support via all forms – hugs, handshakes, fist bumps – and spreading positivity all around campus to donating to Students’ Development Fund or Campus Construction.
As per tradition, this year’s Giving Week will span from May 5 to 15. Fulbright Giving Week 2022 wishes to Empower Change-makers through many exciting events, to name a few: Giving Fair which displays different student-led community activities, varying from different fields; Human Library where students share their experience centered around making positive changes; Art Exhibition which features our students’ creativity; Music Show by our very own Fulbright home-grown talents.
