Charity run program “Run For The Heart” comes back virtually

The annual charity run event named “Run For The Heart” is coming back with a new form and a variety of unique and interesting activities, to raise funds for children with congenital heart defects.

At the launching ceremony. 

With the meaningful message “Heart to heart – Raise the lives”, Run For The Heart is the charity run program organized by Gamuda Land and Heartbeat Vietnam annually to raise funds for unlucky children all over the country to receive heart surgeries and give them a normal, healthy life and a bright future.

Since 2013, after seven consecutive years of operation, the program has raised over VND 32 billion to help more than 1,200 children receiving free heart surgeries.

This year, in order to organize the event responsibly to prevent the risk of COVID-19 outbreak in the community, the “race track” of the Run for the Heart 2020 will be held entirely on cyberspace which would promise to bring interesting experiences for racers. The organizers have partnered with Vietrace365, one of the most popular online virtual race platforms in the running community of Vietnam to offer “the race courses” nationwide. Racers just need to access and register on the link Chạy vì trái tim online.

In addition to donating full entry fee (from VND 150,000/runner) to Heartbeat Vietnam – The VinaCapital Foundation in order to help poor children with congenital heart defects to receive heart surgeries, the runners can also take part in a useful sports playground with the opportunity to receive medals and exciting rewards from the tournament.

Particularly, the biggest highlight of this year’s event is the unique format of fundraising through a series of mini gameshows broadcast live on the event’s official communication channels including the Facebook pages CHẠY VÌ TRÁI TIMGAMUDA LAND VN and the YouTube channel GAMUDA LAND VN, respectively on 16th & 30th December 2020 and 8th January 2021. The events will be joined by plenty of famous celebrities, calling out to the mass community to join hands, contributing to a brighter future for the disadvantaged children with congenital heart disease in Vietnam.

Moreover, it is also an ambition for the Run for the Heart 2020 to “climb Top Trending” when the theme song “Run For The Heart”, originally written by composer Duong Khac Linh, now hugely participated by a star-studded cast – more than 30 celebrities such as Lam Truong, Hoang Bach, Nguyen Phi Hung, Quoc Nghiep – Ngoc Mai, Nam Cuong, Luu Hien Trinh, Ha Nhi, Miss Hoang Phuong… and a “very trendy spice” from two King Of Rap’s contestants namely Lona and Dablo. The MV will be officially released on 3 December 2020 on the official channels of the program.
