The fourth annual charity scooter run will be held on November 22 for the benefit of orphaned and underprivileged children in Can Gio District, Ho Chi Minh City.

Patrick Joynt, director of the Saigon Scooter Center which
organizes the event, said it has been attracting more people each year and raising more money for the cause.

The event is open to everyone and tickets are priced at VND150,000 (US$8.8) for advance purchases and VND200,000 ($11.7) on the day of the event. All the proceeds will go to charity.

Last year, more than 120 people participating in the 40-km ride raised over $5,000 worth of gifts and toys for orphaned children in Dong Nai Province.

Sponsors this year include Saigon Scooter Center, DHL Express, Park Hyatt Saigon, TQPR Vietnam and TMA Solutions.
