UPRACE is back!


Newborns supporters around the world, join us and run with your friends, family and colleagues to make our dream of 50,000 runners a reality. From 29 August to 23 September (25 days), put your running shoes on, prepare well, eat and stretch and get running for Newborns! We all have a role to play to in saving newborn lives and creating a better society.


As an individual, you can join the Newborns team and donate an amount for every km you run. If you are a company, set up a team and all your team members can donate an amount of their choosing per km AND your company can match the donation amount or choose an amount per km. With each km you run, the UpRace sponsors will donate at least 1,000 vnd to one of three Social Organisations. These 3 Social Organizations, including Newborns Vietnam, will receive fund-raising money from runners and sponsors, converted from the recorded running distance.
