We work exclusively in Vietnam since 1992 to help remove barriers to education.


Next month, I'm excited to have a chance to spend 4 weeks with my son and 18 other riders bicycling across Vietnam to raise money for Vietnam's poorest children. My son has lived and worked in Vietnam the last 7 years and has participated in this great cause twice. This year, on the 10th anniversary of this ride, he will be co-leading the team and has asked me to join them. We'll be riding 1200 miles, from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, over the course of 4 weeks. I'll post updates regularly so you can join me in spirit. If you're moved by the cause and would like to make a donation, please use the link below to do so. I can assure you that 100% of your donations go to the charities listed as all riders cover their own expenses for the ride.
Here's the details on the ride and the charities supported by this ride:

  • H2H is a charity bike ride which raises essential funds to support Saigon Children's Charity, KOTO, Live and Give, ILA's  Community Network  and last but certainly not least  Blue Dragon Children's Foundation in Hanoi.
  • H2H rider's are 100 % volunteers who live and work in Vietnam, so we can say that 100% of donations will go to the above listed charities.  
  • We are Teachers, Journalists, Hospitality Managers, and Event Promoters, sales people and artists.  Our backgrounds are as diverse as our Nationalities.  However our mission is the same: to raise money for impoverished and at-risk children in Vietnam.
  • H2H rider's will ride the length of Vietnam from Hanoi in the North to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) in the south.  It is about the same distance as cycling from Chicago to Miami, although in 90 degree heat and 90% humidity.
  • Please help us in anyway you can even a small donation can go a long way to completing our goal, making my day and changing many children's lives.
