HCMC – More than 3,000 people took part in the Resolution Run 2019 organized by financial solution provider Sun Life Vietnam in Phu My Hung urban area in District 7, HCMC on January 27.

The organizer donated VND100 million from registration fees to the HCMC Sponsoring Association for Poor Patients to help patients with diabetes.

This was the second year the international event had been held in Vietnam to raise public awareness about the importance of a healthy lifestyle and encourage people to be physically active, according to Larry Madge, general director of Sun Life Vietnam.

The event featured two distances – 5 kilometers starting at 7:10 a.m. with over 1,700 runners competing and 10 kilometers beginning 10 minutes later with over 1,300 runners attending.

Besides Vietnam, the Resolution Run is held in other Asian markets where Sun Life operates, including Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Hong Kong.

Established in January 2013, Sun Life Vietnam provides financial services to individual and corporate customers. The company is committed to helping clients achieve lifetime financial security and have a healthier lifestyle.
