The annual Terry Fox Run will return to HCM City this Saturday and to Ha Noi in early December, organisers have announced.
In HCM City, the event will begin at 7am at Phu My Hung urban area, District 7 and include festivities and on-site registrations, while the event in Ha Noi starts at 7am on December 2 at the main gate of Thong Nhat Park.
The event has raised public awareness about corporate social responsibility and healthcare issues in Viet Nam since 1997.
Last year, the event attracted approximately 12,300 participants in HCM City and another 7,000 in Ha Noi and raised more than VND2.4 billion (US$110,000) for cancer and heart disease research and treatment. — VNS
