Running movements in Danang in particular and Vietnam in general are developing day by day. Each runner is not only running for health, running for passion, but also running for the community and running for sharing.
Throughout the nearly 10-year journey, the race donated funds, contributed to many charities, and supported organizations of vulnerable communities still facing many difficulties in society, with funds coming from the valuable donations of individuals and groups involved in the race.
This meaningful activity will continue this year, with each participant able to run as well as contribute to helping those in need through the Run for Community slots.
ALL DONATIONS MADE BY YOUR REGISTRATION WILL BE FUNDED TO THE FOLLOWING ORGANIZATIONS:
