‘The Virtual Steps Challenge‘ is back this year from May 4 -31 for an online race where people from around the world can track their steps as they run, walk, or exercise, compete, raise money for children, and also receive real prizes.
Organized by Saigon Children, a UK organization founded in 1992, last year event focused on autism and attracted thousands of people participating online and offline raising over 700 million VND.
All funds raised by ‘The Virtual Steps Challenge‘ 2020, will go to various programs helping them to overcome the challenges caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, as well as to ensure they can go back to school when things normalize. During these uncertain times it’s today more important than ever to help disabled children by providing food, shelter, clean water, learning materials, or counselling, in order to help them overcome this difficult time.
How does it work?
Get your inscription HERE for 250,000 VND. After registration, each person can create an account and connect to the Google Fit application on their phone to collect the steps for each of their daily activities. Every physical activity, running, walking, exercising, or even doing the housework will be tracked by phone and count toward the goal when participants connect their Google Fit app with their account at iRace.vn, Saigon children’s technology partner for this event. At the end of May, once their goal is reached, a real medal along with other prizes will be sent directly to everyone by post.
