Together, we can save newborn lives – won’t you join us?

Support us

What an incredible weekend of swimming at the new Empire City state of the art, saltwater swimming pool. We had 8 fantastic teams consisting of brave amateurs and experienced swimmers who came together and swam an incredible 250km in an exceptional show of support for Newborns to raise funds for our Equipment Appeal.

 

Congratulations to our amazing teams: VNG, NutiFood, Endurance Academy, Minh Long, AIP, Mobile World Group, Frogs Legs and the home team Empire City, you were all wonderful and we were overwhelmed by the passion and support you all showed for each other and for Newborns.

 

Thank you, Empire City for sponsoring this event at your spectacular new pool, the incredible setting gave the weekend that extra wow factor. Newborns would also like to thank Greenhat for organising an exciting, fun-filled event, Pocari Sweat and 365 Begin for donating the electrolyte water and nutrition bars that kept our swimmers going all weekend, and a huge thank you to Hoan My Saigon Hospital for providing the medical support and keeping everybody safe. Finally, thank you to the countless others who worked hard all weekend to make Newborns’ first swimming gala a huge success!

 

Thanks again to everyone to who took part, the money you raised through your incredible fundraising will go a long way in helping us achieve our goal of zero preventable deaths of newborns in Vietnam.
