On March 4, 2024, Gamuda Land Vietnam (Gamuda Land) and VinaCapital Foundation’s Heartbeat Vietnam program officially announced the 10th Run For The Heart event. This is the annual charity run organized by Gamuda Land in collaboration with VinaCapital Foundation’s Heartbeat Vietnam program, which has been implemented since 2019, to raise funds and sponsor life-saving surgeries for disadvantaged children with congenital heart defects in Vietnam.

Throughout the previous 9 seasons, the event has successfully raised a total donation amount of 40.6 billion VND, providing free heart surgeries for 1,549 pediatric patients and bringing joy to thousands of families.

In commemoration of its 10th anniversary milestone, Run For The Heart has returned to the capital city of Hanoi under the captivating theme of “Run with Rhythm”. This theme draws inspiration from the notion that rhythmic beats serve as a symbolic representation of the “heartbeat” – a method of healing and an effective way to connect people and hearts. y emphasizing the integration of music throughout, the organizers aim not only to spread the spirit of compassion to the community but also to inspire all participants, promoting physical fitness and fostering good health.

The official announcement of the 10th Run For The Heart event was honored to welcome: Mr. James Lai Siaw Pin – General Director of Gamuda Land Vietnam, Mr. Rad Kivette – CEO of VinaCapital Foundation and representatives from many sponsors who joined hands.

At the launching event, Mr. James Lai Siaw Pin – General Director of Gamuda Land Vietnam shared: “Social responsibility is an integral part of all activities undertaken by Gamuda Land. We are delighted to receive enthusiastic support from the community, sponsors, organizations, and business partners so that outcomes from the Run For The Heart event can provide free heart surgeries for underprivileged children. The healed hearts and the continuation of unfinished dreams serve as our motivation to embark on the 10th season of Run For The Heart and beyond.”

“We sincerely appreciate Gamuda Land Vietnam for standing by our side and gave their support for Heartbeat Vietnam for over a decade, saving the precious lives of more than 1,5000 children and bringing happiness for their families. With the collective efforts of sponsors, partners, and the community in Hanoi, I believe that Run For The Heart will be a truly festive occasion, bringing joy, fostering connections, promoting sportsmanship, and spreading the message of compassion to the community, thereby healing numerous little hearts,” said Mr. Rad Kivette, CEO of VinaCapital Foundation.

The series of fundraising events, Run For The Heart 2024, officially commenced in mid-January, incorporating both online and offline activities to provide participants with engaging and exciting experiences. The program’s centerpiece is the running race scheduled to take place on March 23, 2024, at Yen So Park – a refreshing green space within the Gamuda City project, located in the heart of Hanoi.
