As a leading life insurer in Vietnam, the company was the Diamond sponsor of the programme.

According to Manulife Vietnam CEO Kim Fleming, the company is very proud of bringing customers diversified financial solutions as well as excellent services in the past 19 years.

Not only that, the company always encourages and accompanies the community to lead a dynamic and healthy lifestyle, supporting disease prevention and treatment activities through financing sports events at home and abroad.

“That is why Manulife Vietnam has been supporting Hanoi Run for Children for the past 15 years, playing a part in bringing a healthier life for less fortunate children,” he said.

The Hanoi Run for Children 2018 attracted more than 7,000 participants and raised more than VND1.1 billion ($47,800) in funding.

All the donations will be spent on supporting disadvantaged children with cancer and congenital heart diseases at the Vietnam National Children’s Hospital, the Hanoi Heart Hospital, and VinaCapital Foundation’s Heartbeat Vietnam.
