My name is Dang Nguyen and I am a new RTB member this year. In 2016, to celebrate my half-century birthday, I made a personal commitment to do at least one Ironman race and one Habitat for Humanity Global Village build in Vietnam each year…. by the end of this July (July 28 to be exact), if the Ironman god looks favorably on me, I will have completed 4 Habitat builds in Vietnam and 4 Ironman races (IMCA 2016, 2018 & 2019 and IMCDA 2017). On track with my personal goal so far!
I have just started recruiting volunteers for the March 2020 Global Village build in Vietnam. It is a one-week build in the Central region, followed by an optional 7-day bike tour from the Da Lat highlands to the beautiful town of Hoi An (plus a few beach and countryside stops along the way!). Everyone deserves safe and decent housing and participating in a Global Village build is a wonderful way of traveling to a different country, experiencing a new culture and giving back at the same time. Over 60 volunteers have joined me in Vietnam in the past 4 years, some have come back twice. In 2020, the bike tour will add an even more exciting touch to the trip.
If you are interested to find out more, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are only about 10 spots left and so SWIM, BIKE, RUN fast…..:-)
