“It is the unique opportunity to raise funds for two charities who do incredible work for our community and our wildlife, while encouraging people in Vietnam to get their sneakers on, get outside, improve their health, and run for a good cause. “

International multi-asset broker Vantage has teamed up with UpRace 2022, a virtual marathon that will be held between 28 October and 20 November, for a good cause in Vietnam.

Runners and potential runners who install the race app on either Android or iOS can join Team Vantage and make each kilometre count.

The brokerage firm will donate 10,000 VND for every kilometre run to two prominent charities: the Association of Vietnamese Handicapped Orphans and Save Vietnam’s Wildlife.

At Vantage, we have always aspired to empower people around us, while improving our natural environment.
