RUN FOR THE HEART is a “Run for charity” event held annually to raise funds for the poor children suffering with congenital heart defects that are in need to receive heart surgeries across Vietnam.

Heartbeat Vietnam wants to contribute to keep the children's heartbeats, so that they can play and run on their own feet, live healthily and reach out for a bright future as they deserved.

For most of us, running is just a simple activity, but "Run for Heart" will light up the rays of hope for the poor children to achieve better lives.

The program will take place on Sunday morning, December 16 in Celadon City, Tan Phu district, HCM City.

“Run for the Hearts 2018” attempts to have 15.000 runners joining together to raise funds for 120 impoverished children suffering from congenital hearts defects. Each participant, who donate a minimum of VND 100.000 (USD 4.3), will bring about wonderful recoveries to hundreds of unfortunate little hearts as well as lighten the hopes of a better future to them.

Especially, with SPECIAL PROMOTION for those who buy family package is only VND 200.000 (USD 8.6), you can receive 2 sport T-Shirts & 1 children T-Shirt (limited by 500 slots on Ticketbox).

All of the money collected from sponsors, ticketbox & other resources will be transferred to Heartbeat Vietnam to save children with congenital heart disease.
