Under this event, BIDV employees, customers and the public can join hands to donate Tet gifts to the poor every New Year. Participating in the running race is also a chance for runners to improve their sportsmanship and health conditions. The race attracts nearly 60,000 runners annually and has made a total distance of 5.1 million kilometers. Accordingly, BIDV has donated more than VND19.4 billion (equivalent to 38,800 gifts) for disadvantaged families across the country.
This is one of two online charity running races organized by BIDV every year. Previously, in April, on the occasion of its anniversary (26th April), BIDV organized “BIDVRUN - For a Green Life” to convert mileage into cash donated by BIDV to build flood-proof community houses and carry out “01 million trees” program launched by BIDV in response to the “one billion trees” program initiated by the Prime Minister.
