Heartbeat Vietnam sincerely thanks all sponsors, celebrities and runners who joined RUN FOR THE HEART journey of saving more children in the remaining days of 2018 and throughout 2019.

Since 2013, RUN FOR THE HEART annual charity events, a joint effort between Gamuda Land Vietnam and Heartbeat Vietnam, have raised over USD850,000 to provide heart surgeries for 710 children. With USD200,000 additional fund raised in 2018, 181 more children will be saved. For majority of them, this will be the first time in life their health gets better.

We hope next RUN FOR THE HEART events will receive wider support from the community for more beloved children will be saved from congenital heart defects.
