H2H Ride for Vietnam
Cycling Vietnam to provide education for all.
For all Vietnam’s children to have access to the education and opportunities they need in order to fulfill their potential in life.
H2H Mission Statement
H2H exists to help break the cycle of poverty in the lives of Vietnam’s poorest children and youth, in the following ways:
By cycling throughout Vietnam to raise vital funds for child poverty alleviation
By celebrating and exploring Vietnam's beauty and cultural richness
By partnering with like-minded children's charities engaged in education and civil society building in Vietnam
By giving its volunteer riders the motivation and experience to affect positive change for the rest of their lives
“Give a child a fish and you feed her for a day. Teach a child to fish and you feed her for a lifetime"
H2H is entirely run by volunteers, with organizational support from its charity partners and corporate partners and an H2H advisory Board made up of our founders and past leaders.
100% of donations go straight to our charity partners as all ride expenses are covered by the riders and corporate sponsors. The ride provides an opportunity to give something back to Vietnam as well as having the trip of a lifetime! The first H2H ride was in 2009 and H2H has been fundraising every year since then.
The full H2H route covers 2000 km of breathtaking scenery over 28 days, including 3 rest days, cycling at an average of 80 km per day. The route follows the inland Ho Chi Minh Highway from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, including parts of the legendary Ho Chi Minh Trail and avoids the traffic of the much busier coastal Highway 1. It’s an opportunity to discover rural Vietnam at its best whilst raising vital funds for some of Vietnam’s leading children’s charities. In recent years, H2H has organised shorter routes to offer flexibility for different rider timeframes and budgets. Contact us for the latest charity ride options.
