MRISA Volleyball – Let’s do this!

We’ve made history this year!  For the first time in UNIS Hanoi history, UNIS Hanoi Boys won the APAC Volleyball Tournament AND our kids won the APAC Boys Soccer Tournament, recently hosted at UNIS.  Let’s keep the momentum going!   

On May 3-5 UNIS Hanoi is hosting the boys and girls MRISA Volleyball Tournament.  Let’s go for three wins! 

The Booster committee will be selling food and drinks during the tournament for the athletes, spectators and guests.  In addition, we will be giving away different spirit items to create a great atmosphere for our teams and school.  

To make this possible we need YOU!  We know your time is valuable so if you are not available to help at our booth during the event, we are taking donations of different food and drinks that can be delivered before or during the event.

ANY AND ALL HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED!

Community Flea Market: Clean out and cash in!

Dear Parents,

The SCO is arranging with UNIS Hanoi to create space for a community flea market on May 4, the same day as the Used Book Sale, a MRISA volleyball tournament, and a Saturday of Service. UNIS Hanoi Flea Markets are great fun and there will be many people on campus that day. The flea market though is for you. Clean out and cash in!

You will be provided table(s) and chairs, as needed. Once we get an indication of all needs for space, we will assign a place for you so that it is a simple set up that morning.

Please note: Books cannot be sold at the Flea Market to avoid any competition with the book sale. Families are encouraged to donate books to the Used Book Sale instead to support literacy projects led by service students.

At this point, we would like to know how many of you would like to open up shop. Please use the link to register here for your table and read through the Flea Market Guidelines to best prepare.

Questions?

Feel free to contact me via email Chris @ SCO_MS@unishanoi.org.

So make a date, sign up today and start your training, knowing that every Dong of your registration fee will be used to support our UNIS Sports.

AQI & Safety

Please be sure to include a mobile phone number when you register so we can keep you updated on AQI and any changes to the planned activities.

Also please note that while every effort will be made to ensure safety for all, families take part in the 5K FUNd Run (and Walk!) at their own risk. Traffic will not be stopped and runners will not have priority. UNIS Hanoi and Ciputra Management do not take responsibility for any incident that occurs outside UNIS Hanoi campus during this event.

Fees?

Pay before the day: 250,000 VND for individual registration or 500,000 VND for family registration.

Pay on the day: (even if you registered online) 350,000 VND per person and 750,000 for families.

Please note that if you register on the day we cannot guarantee a running bib number for timing for the 5K Run. Complete the online form and then come to campus to pay the week before the event, and if you are running (or walking) the 5k race you can also pick up your race number.

Pay and Pick up times: Tuesday (Feb 19) to Friday (Feb 22) in front of the Cafeteria 8:00 – 08:30 and 15:00 – 16:00

The Route?

All races will start and finish on the back grassy fields. The 5k FUNd Run (and Walk!) will take place throughout campus and the immediate road around UNIS. See route below. The kids’ 300 and 600 meters will take place on a track on the grassy fields so we can cheer them on!

(Regarding the route: First run three blue laps around the inside of the campus. Followed by two green laps on the eco-path in Ciputra directly alongside the UNIS Hanoi Campus. Complete the race the final 130m back on the field to the FINISH LINE!)

Training?

There are many ‘couch to 5k’ fitness plans available but please be sure to check with your doctor if you have concerns about your training. If you or your kids have running partners that are not UNIS members, feel free to register for them and bring them along. We are not advertising outside of our school to ensure this remains and small and safe event for families.
