On November 8th, 2022, the organizing committee of the “International Friendship Run for Children” visited and presented 80 sets of gifts for disadvantaged children with cancer in Hanoi who are currently undergoing treatment at the Vietnam National Hospital of Pediatrics.
First established in 2000 under the name Terry Fox Run, the event’s name was later changed to the “Hanoi Run for Children” and was held from 2009 to 2019. Over the past 5 years, this activity has successfully raised more than 5 billion VND in donations, and since 2009 has supported treatment for more than 281 children with congenital heart defects and 131 pediatric cancer patients at the Vietnam National Hospital of Pediatrics, Hanoi Heart Hospital, and VinaCapital Foundation’s Heartbeat Vietnam program.
This year, “Hanoi Run for Children” will return with a new name “International Friendship Run for Children” which will take place tentatively in March 2023 in Hanoi with the purpose of raising funds to support the treatment of disadvantaged children with cancer and congenital heart defects at the Vietnam National Hospital of Pediatrics, Hanoi Heart Hospital, and VinaCapital Foundation’s Heartbeat Vietnam program.
The Organizing Committee hopes that the “International Friendship Run for Children 2022” will spread the noble cause of this activity, hence promoting compassion amongst all participants and instilling faith in a brighter future for disadvantaged children and their families. More than 5,000 people are expected to attend this year’s event, alongside dedicated partners and sponsors such as VinaCapital, Manulife Vietnam, and Exness Financial Transaction Company.
