Saigon Children’s Charity (SCC) today announced the 15th running of the Saigon Cyclo Challenge!

About the annual Saigon Cyclo Challenge
Since 2001, the Saigon Cyclo Challenge, organised by Saigon Children’s Charity and the business community, has brought sport, entertainment and fun to thousands of people each year. Over the past 14 years, the purpose of the Cyclo Challenge has remained the same: to raise funds for SCC and the children they support. Thanks to the participation of the business community in Vietnam as well as participants at events, the annual Cyclo Challenge has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help children in Vietnam escape from poverty through education.
