Nearly 7,000 people took part in the 2017 HCMC RUN — the City Marathon last Saturday, the city’s biggest running event of the year.

The event marked the 25th anniversary of the first international marathon held in HCM City and also the third straight year that Taiwan Excellence powered the HCMC RUN.

By participating in this meaningful and exciting event, Taiwan Excellence is gradually proving its mission of promoting a healthy lifestyle in Việt Nam.

Talking about the close relationship between Taiwan Excellence and HCMC RUN, Judy Chang, deputy general director of the Taipei Economic & Cultural Office’s commercial division, said, “2017 is the 25th year anniversary of the marathon in HCM City, and so Taiwan Excellence is really glad to be a part of that significant event in HCM City history.

“We are also very proud to, once again, be associated with the HCMC RUN – The City Marathon 2017 powered by Taiwan Excellence, one of the year’s most highly anticipated sporting events in Viet Nam.

“Our goal is to promote sportsmanship and healthy lifestyles among Vietnamese youths as well as strengthen the Vietnamese - Taiwanese friendship.”

In the seven years since launching in Viet Nam, Taiwan Excellence has been bringing to the country’s consumers the most innovative products from Taiwan and the latest technologies.

These products can inspire and help people, especially the younger Vietnamese generations, to develop healthier lifestyles.

Furthermore, with the aim of boosting sportsmanship in the community, Taiwan Excellence also donated US$5,000 to a charity, Run with & Run for PWD/AOS, at the HCMC RUN.

The proceeds raised at the event will go to people with disabilities/survivors of Agent Orange (PWD/AOS) through the HCM City Association for PWD and Orphans and HCM City Association of Victims of Agent Orange/dioxin. — VNS
