Port Jefferson Dragon Boat Race Festival 2014


That is one of the most good-lookin’ group of people we’ve ever seen!

On September 20, 2014 the VLACC Team Phở paddled in three 300M heats to take Bronze (out of 16 teams!) in an incredible and intense Race to End Poverty. We couldn’t be prouder of our team, which included many first-timers and retired paddlers 🙂

In each heat, the team was able to surpass the competition and ultimately we raised $1,700 through our Indiegogo Campaign and vendor booth sales! Check out our facebook for awesome pics!

Every cent of that money will go into our VLACC Fund. On October 5, 2014, the VLACC Board of Advisers convened to determine how the donations will be distributed. We are pleased to announce that the donations will go towards bike programs and scholarships for school-children in Vietnam, as well as vocational training and others (updates to follow).

Our words fail us when it comes to how grateful we are for everyone’s effort, love, and support. So until we can find other words, “THANK YOU” will have to do. Cảm ơn bạn!

Wanna be a #VLACCteampho paddler next year? Let us know!


Phở on three: 1- 2- 3- !
