On 10 December 2017, Hong Ngoc General Hospital was honored to be the main medical sponsor for Hanoi Half Marathon 2017. As one of Vietnam’s longest standing running events, this year the Hanoi Half Marathon delivered the message of “Run for bears”.
Hanoi Half Marathon is an annual running event held on the second Sunday of December for non-benefit purpose. The Marathon’s main races include: 21km, 10km, 5km, 3km, and 800m with various types of completion such as individual, group or family. Thanks to this diversity, the event always attracts a large number of runners, regardless age, occupation and nationality. Particularly, the Hanoi Half Marathon 2017 was held for “Run for bears” message, asking for the end of bear-bile farming in Vietnam as well as encouraging the community to stop consuming bear bile.
Accompanying the Hanoi Half Marathon 2017, Hong Ngoc General Hospital continued being the event’s main medical sponsor. To best support this meaningful event, the hospital set up 3 medical stations staffed with professional doctors and nurses. Two ambulances followed the runners for timely solving emergency problems occurred during the races.
In addition, to encourage people to care more about their health, the hospital offered 6 vouchers of intensive health check-up for 3 male athletes and 3 female athletes who won the 21km race and 800 vouchers of 10% discount on health check-up at Hong Ngoc Savico Clinic for all runners.
27 staff of Hong Ngoc General Hospital also cheerfully participated in the races, contributing to spread out the event’s meaningful message.
With the Hanoi Half Marathon 2017, Hong Ngoc General Hospital and the organization board not only wish the community to join hand to spread out the message of stopping bear-bile farming and consuming bear bile in Vietnam but hoped that the sport spirit would be raised in combination with healthy lifestyle.
