Run with Me is part of the ASEAN-wide YOUnified Campaign to commemorate the 5th anniversary of the US Government signature programme named Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI)

According to the US Embassy, US Ambassador to Vietnam Daniel Kritenbrink will give remarks at Run with Me, and around 700 runners are expected to attend the run of this year.

In 2017, Run with Me attracted the participation of around 1,000 people, running in pair (one visually-impaired accompanied by one sighted), holding hands and running together on two different routes of 1.7km or 3.4km, equivalent to one round and two round trips around the lake.

Besides the race, runners also learned how the blind use canes, write and read, play chess together and enjoy musical performances by the blind.

Run with Me 2018 will commence at 7:30 am December 2 at Ly Thai To Park, Dinh Tien Hoang Street, Hanoi./.
