A group of mysterious guests also came to the scene. They are the Spring Buds Students come from Fuyang, Sihong and other places. They had successfully completed high school study with the help of the “Spring Buds Education Aid” project in Northern Jiangsu, and now they are admitted to their ideal universities. This year, they ran with us together to help more Spring Buds Kids. 

All the money raised by the 7th Chervon Charity Run will be donated to the Tzu Chi Foundation to support the Spring Buds Program in Northern Jiangsu to warm up more children with the power of running and light up their bright future.

'I Want to Support the Charity Run with My Own Strength!'

Zhu Yongxin, born in the 21st century, majoring in computer, from Nanjing University of Information Science & Technology.“One day a volunteer from Tzu Chi Foundation told me they wanted me to take part in a love running race.” This is the first time Zhu Yongxin heard about the Charity Run. “I once benefited from the Spring Buds Program, so I hope to help more Spring Buds Students through my modest efforts.” On April 13, Zhu Yongxin and eight other Spring Buds Students took part in the love running race and successfully completed the 10KM race.

Zhu Yongxin is from Sihong and his father went out to work since he was in junior high school because his mother was not well enough to do heavy work. The Spring Buds Program enables him to study in high school for three years and enter his ideal university. 

“The Spring Buds Program has helped many children like me through a very difficult period of material poverty.” Zhu Yongxin wants to say to other Spring Buds Children, “The future is in our own hands. One day, we will become the ambassador to help more people in need.”
