Run for the Heart race comes back virtually

The eighth Run for the Heart race, an annual event to support disadvantaged children with congenital heart diseases, is taking place virtually, meaning it can reach runners from across the nation.

The race is an initiative of Gamuda Land Vietnam and Heartbeat Vietnam – a health care programme of VinaCapital Foundation.

Launched on November 27, the event is the result of a partnership between its organisers and Vietrace365, one of the most popular online virtual race platforms for the running community in Vietnam, which offers race courses nationwide.

After completing a minimum of 30km, he receives one sport T-shirt and a medal.

The race has completed its seven consecutive editions since 2013, raising more than VND32 billion (US$1.38 million) and helping over 1,200 children nationwide receive free heart surgery.
