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

Support us

Last weekend was the Techcombank Ho Chi Minh City International Marathon. It was a fantastic few days of making new friends, showing off our stylish new Newborns tattoos and seeing more people raising the Newborns flag across the finish line. The Newborns stall was the place to be and it was exciting seeing so many people grab some of our spectacular new Leisure Collection, generously donated by the wonderful Un-Available.

 

Congratulations to our Newborns Ambassadors Richard Leech and Vo Thi Hai Yen for another amazing podium finish! We are so proud of you and your achievements, and we are incredibly thankful to you for flying the Newborns flag. Thank you to everyone who wore Newborns kit over the weekend, we appreciate every single one of you.

 

Finally, a massive thank you to everyone who volunteered over the weekend, your help was invaluable on the stand and on the finish line helping us cheer on our Newborns runners. It’s always great to make new friends and we couldn’t have done any of this without you.

 

And of course, a huge thank you to Techcombank and Sunrise Events Vietnam for organising a brilliant weekend. With over 13,000 runners, it was an inspirational event to be a part of and we are grateful for the opportunity to be there. With your partnership, we will achieve our goal of zero preventable newborn deaths in Vietnam.
