In Da Nang alone, approximately 3,500 people joined the 1.35km and 3.5km long runs through the Nguyen Van Troi pedestrian bridge.

FPT Group, the organizer of the race, raised more than VND3.5 billion for the programme ‘Light of School’ as part of its Hope Fund.

The proceeds will be used to build schools, upgrade facilities, and provide books and learning materials for disadvantaged areas.

The programme will also award scholarships to children with special circumstances across the country.

Happy Run 2023 is one of a series of charitable activities FPT is undertaking in Hanoi, Da Nang, Quy Nhon (Binh Dinh), Can Tho, and Ho Chi Minh City this year to mark its 35th founding anniversary.

Nearly 10,000 people have participated in a series of FPT-organised activities, including Happy Run, blood donation, free health check-ups, and fundraising.
