Together, we can save newborn lives – will you join us?

Support us

Last Saturday saw the Team Newborns runners take on the beautiful hidden trails of Moc Chau in what was a hot and challenging run for all at Vietnam Trail Marathon. Seeing our runners cross the finish line with their Newborns flags raised high after enduring such a tough climb filled us with joy and pride.

 

There was a real sense of community at the race, and we were delighted to see the Moc Chau doctors and nurses out in force in celebration of the work we have started together at their hospital. A special congratulations goes out to the Moc Chau General Hospital Director Dr Vi Hong Ky, and Dr Luong Thi Thanh Tuyen for their amazing finish as well as British Ambassador Gareth Ward and Elena Ward for raising the flag for Newborns yet again.

 

Newborns would like to say thank you all our amazing runners, both old and new, for giving it your all this weekend, as well as the people of Moc Chau for the wonderful support you showed to everybody at the event. Finally thank you to Topas Travel and VTM for continuing to give back to the community, for supporting Newborns and showing us all the power of sport in action.
