Champion Dash 2017
July 31, 2017
Family Medical Practice and 9999 Emergency Medical Response were out in force at the third annual Red Bull Champion Dash in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 7 on Saturday.
With three ambulance units on hand, three medical tents in operation, and fully-fledged emergency medical team, competitors were in safe hands as they navigated the 21-obstacle, 7-km track in Phu My Hung. The event attracted over 4,000 people this year including professional athletes, adrenaline seekers wanting to test their limits, and young Future Champions on a separate obstacle course.
Our medical stations were busy throughout the race. Out of 4000 attendees on race day, FMP’s EMR *9999 program successfully cared for the medical needs of 150 participants that requested care.
Champion Dash General Director Russel Johnson – himself a former Canadian firefighter and first responder – was effusive in his praise for the work that the 9999 team were able to offer.
