JOIN AND BET FOR MY FIRST EVER MOUTAIN MARATHON TO RAISE FUND FOR VIETNAMESE CHILDREN
To all my international and oversea friends, families, near and far! This is my first time ever in my life, I conquered my own challenge without going straight to the hospital, but also, extremely excited to know, to join Vietnam Mountain Marathon 2017.
My husband, Justin and I have decided to nominate myself compete at the Vietnam Mountain Marathon 2017 (VMM) by participating in the 10km on Sept 24th. We will climb to mountains, run through yellow rice fields, many water buffaloes trails and see colorful ethnic minority houses in Sapa. There is no doubt this run has been considered as one of the most spectacular mountain races in the world and I urge you to come and visit our country one day.
I have been practicing very “seriously” by going to the gym once a week, running around the park 3km in…1 hour, doing some push-ups, going up and down the car few times per day, breathing in and out every minutes….and hopefully it works ^____^ Frankly, I’ve never walked (not run) 5km in my life. I don’t know how I can survive out there J. But this time, Justin and I will join VMM as the team members of Operation Smile Viet Nam to raise fund for free surgery of children with cleft lips, cleft palate.
Therefore, I would like to invite you joining me to take part in one of the most meaningful games that we could all do together.
1, If I can crawl myself back to the finish line prior to the cut off time, you would contribute an amount of your choice (regardless it is big or small, it could be 10$, $20, $100 or even 1 or SMILES – $250) so we can all together organize a future medical mission for the children of Operation Smile Vietnam either at the end of 2017 or beginning of 2018. Note the amount of your contribution on my FB so I can carefully record it.
2, If 3 people donate 42mil each – 1 mil per km Justin & I run, totally 42km, we will take the bib 21km. I’m sure Justin will have to carry me, but I do hope that we could create more smiles for those children in need.
All the contribution collected, along with ones from friends and other runners who participate under the name of Operation Smile Vietnam this year will be used for our kind, talented volunteers to change lives and heal smiles for those in need.
Now is the time to make a BET, TROLL, GUESS, CONTRIBUTE, VOTE…whatever make you happy. I promise that I will not take taxi, uber, cyclo, motorbike or other means of transportation to get to the finish line. Please join us to make these miracles happen.
