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 850,000 USD to provide heart surgeries for 710 children. With 200,000 USD 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 the next RUN FOR THE HEART events will receive wider support from the community for more beloved children will be saved from congenital heart defects.
