Manulife Vietnam donates nearly VND200 million to Terry Fox Fund

Nearly 700 staff and agents of Manulife Vietnam, part of leading international financial services group Manulife Financial Corporation, have joined the 2017 Terry Fox Run, raising nearly VND200 million ($9,000) for cancer research and treatment.

Manulife Vietnam has been the main sponsor and contributed the most runners to the Terry Fox Run in the past years

This is the 17th consecutive year that Manulife Vietnam participates in the charity run.

Over the years, Manulife Vietnam has been contributing the most runners to the Terry Fox Run, which manifests the dedication of Manulife Vietnam’s staff to corporate social responsibility initiatives.

“As a leading life insurance company, Manulife understands that health is people's most valuable asset. Manulife Vietnam always encourages its staff and agents to lead healthy and active lifestyles through prestigious sporting events,” said Paul Nguyen, general director of Manulife Vietnam.

“Via these activities, besides improving physical health, we can provide practical contributions to people in need in our community," he noted.

This philosophy inspired Manulife Vietnam to become the main sponsor of Danang International Marathon for three consecutive years as well as to participate in other prestigious charity run programmes, such as Hanoi Run for Children.

In addition, Manulife Vietnam also encourages employees and agents to pursue healthy and active lifestyles through its yoga, biking, and running clubs.
