EY Vietnam organized a running race for 1,200 people

Nearly 1,200 people participated in the "EY Run for the Better 2023" race in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, contributing to installing water and insect monitoring equipment for Kien Giang.

The race takes place on September 9. The running track in Hanoi is Yen So Park, Hoang Mai district; In Ho Chi Minh City, it is Anh Sao Bridge, Phu My Hung, District 7. Athletes have two distance options: 5 km and 10 km. Both runs have beautiful natural scenery, are safe and have enthusiastic support teams.

Participating in this running race also has the presence of Thanh Vu, the female World Champion of the Deca Ultra Triathlon World Championship 2022. The female runner said that although she has participated in many running events, she is still impressed with the special atmosphere of EY Run for the Better 2023. In addition, she was impressed with the meaning the event brings to the community.
The organizers said that the run aims to create an opportunity for EY Vietnam members to feel, share and spread healthcare awareness, increasing the quality of work and life. The program also brings together the spirit of solidarity, teamwork and EY's core values.

The special point is that EY Vietnam will contribute 100,000 VND to installing smart water and insect monitoring devices in Kien Giang province for every kilometre completed by runners.

Mr Danh Phuong, Head of the People's Committee of Minh Hung hamlet, Minh Hoa commune, Chau Thanh district, Kien Giang province, said the insect monitoring device will help farmers proactively monitor more than 100 different types of insects. Water monitoring equipment will measure salinity, pH and water levels in irrigation water sources. Proactively collecting information about water quality and insect activity helps farmers recognize when to fertilize and water for the highest productivity.

The project is expected to inspire new business models, aiming to protect and restore the environment. This is also one of the goals of the EY Ripples program - EY's key global social responsibility program, aiming to impact one billion people globally by 2030.

In Ho Chi Minh City, Mr. Nguyen Phan Anh Quoc, Director of Audit Services of EY Vietnam, and his family arrived early at the departure area. Three generations of the family set off together, excited about future experiences.

Mr Quoc said the event is not only an opportunity for members to maintain healthcare habits and spread sports awareness. This is also a rare opportunity for the whole family to join hands to bring positive values to the community. "This makes me more proud to be part of EY Vietnam," he emphasized.
Mr. Tran Dinh Cuong, General Director of EY Vietnam, said the unit aims to jointly create a sporting event while building a symbol of deep solidarity and physical readiness. "These are important fundamental factors for us to work together towards higher business ladders, bringing more value to the community and society, affirming our commitment to implementing the principles of EY's integrity mission: Building a better working world," said Mr Cuong.

This is the second time EY Vietnam has organized a large-scale running race. Last year, the unit organized a similar event to celebrate EY's 30th anniversary in Vietnam. Both times, the organizers recognized the EY Family's and Golden Heart Fund's special contributions.
EY Vietnam, established in 1992, is a 100% foreign-invested enterprise providing audit and consulting services in Vietnam. With nearly 2,000 experts and specialized personnel (including foreigners), EY Vietnam is one of the world's leading audit and consulting companies operating in Vietnam.
