Following the launch ceremony, participants are encouraged to access either the website sacombankrunnersclub.com or the Sacombank Runners application to engage in the virtual run. The program will record results until 24/12/2023.

The objective for Stage 14 is to collectively cover 1 million kilometers through walking or running. For every kilometer achieved, Sacombank pledges a contribution of VND 1,000, with the goal of accumulating VND 1 billion by the end of the campaign for the construction of the community cultural houses. The construction activities will be managed by the Central Vietnam Youth Union.

Accompanying the National Volunteer Day 2023, Sacombank presented 50 scholarships and gifts to students facing challenging circumstances who have excelled in their studies in HCMC.

The "Steps for the Community" initiative, jointly launched by Sacombank and the Vietnam Youth Federation in 2020 on a nationwide scale, serves to promote the importance of exercise and sports in enhancing both physical and mental well-being. Simultaneously, it encourages the spirit of initiative and volunteerism within Sacombank employees and the youth of the country, reinforcing their commitment to supporting and preserving the traditional cultural values of ethnic minority communities in Vietnam.

Through the preceding 13 stages, the program garnered significant participation from Sacombank officials and employees, union members, and youth nationwide. To date, six community cultural houses have been inaugurated, serving as hubs for daily activities, cultural exchanges, and the organization of media festivals for six ethnic minority groups: Lu, Chut, La Ha, Bo Y, Mang, and Lo Lo. The remaining cultural houses are slated for inauguration in 2024.
