On March 26, the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee organized the Olympic Running Day for the health of the entire population in 2023.

The program aims to celebrate the 77th anniversary of the traditional day of the sport industry and the 92nd Anniversary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union (March 26, 1931–2023).

On behalf of Ho Chi Minh City’s leaders, Vice Chairman of the City People’s Committee Duong Anh Duc emphasized the importance of exercise for every citizen and Uncle Ho as an example of self-training.

He said that authorities at all levels have created conditions for people to practice sports by themselves in a variety of forms, helping each citizen choose their own favorite sport to create a life-long reasonable exercise habit.

Duc added that the southern city also chose March as the Sports Month to organize sports tournaments from the movement to advanced level, from school age to professional athletes.

He believed that the Olympic Running Day for the entire people’s health in 2023 and sports activities in March received the attention, support and companionship of local people, achieved the set targets, and contributed to improving the health of the entire population.

On this occasion, the City People's Committee awarded Certificates of Merit to 6 units with outstanding contributions to the organization of the significant event./.
