After more than a month of raising money, on December 07, 2018, CISS was happy to announce that we have raised a total of 470,631,500VNĐ. It was our honor to welcome Mr. Kyle Nunas - the Consul General of Canada in Ho Chi Minh city and Mr. Ryan Leonhard - Marketing Director of The Canadian Chamber of Commerce Vietnam (Cancham) participating in the CISS Terry Fox Cheque Presentation this year.

About CISS Terry Fox Run

In 2016, Terry Fox Foundation invited The Canadian International School System (CISS) to be recognized as an Official Terry Fox Run. CISS is the only International School System in Ho Chi Minh City that has been granted this distinct honour. This year is the 3rd Annual CISS Terry Fox Run and it took place on Wednesday, November 7th. Here in Ho Chi Minh City, the Canadian community has been hosting the annual HCMC Terry Fox Run since 1997 with this year’s city wide run took place on Sunday, November 18th.   

The CISS Terry Fox Run brought together our five schools, Canadian International School (CIS), Bilingual Canadian International School (BCIS), Albert Einstein School (AES) and Canada-Vietnam Kindergarten (CVK-Phu My Hung & Binh Chanh campus), as nearly 3,650 students, staff and parents took part in the run at various times throughout the day.

In 2017, CISS raised an incredible 400,000,000 VND that was then donated towards Cancer Research right here in Vietnam.
