I ride for my grandma and grandpa. My maternal grandmother passed away from lung cancer before I was born and my paternal grandfather passed away from prostate cancer in 2012. Both of them raised a family of ten and nine children, respectively, in Vietnam, providing for their families through long laborious hours in the unforgiving humidity and heat. They have raised extensive, loving, and caring families who will always be there to support me in my endeavors, and the reason why I continue to strive to reach my potentials in life.
I ride for those who have given their all for their loved ones and those who never had the chance to thank them.
I ride for my uncle. He was an American soldier and noble hero who fought in the Vietnam war. After the war, he married my aunt and sponsored my family over to America. He was a vibrant, kind-hearted, and a selfless giver who took my parents and sister under his wing when they immigrated from Vietnam. He has paved the way for my future and has given me the ability to grow up in a community full of opportunity so I can achieve my goals and give back to my family and community.
I ride for those who give, for those who sacrifice and create opportunities for others.
I ride for friends and family,
For loved ones,
For a united cause,
For a better future,
For those who have lost hope.
I ride for those who can’t.
