UPRACE 2018 Challenge

With 6 days to go a total of 31,672 participants have run 1,107,703 km. This is amazing and enthusiasm and support is growing every day!

The runners sponsor an amount per km and this is matched funded by generous sponsorship from VNG Corporation, Techcombank, Topica, CMC, Hanoi Amsterdam and many more.

All the runners, sponsors and Newborns Vietnam are united in our passion to make a difference, sport provides the platform to challenge ourselves to transform our own lives and the lives of thousands of newborn infants. A world of safe newborns starts with each of us, we all have a role to play in supporting Vietnam to develop first world neonatal care.

The impact of the UPRACE is HUGE; raising much needed capital to fund an extension of our UK neonatal training programmes for doctors and nurses and to develop a safe transport system.
