Santa Ana Grads Give Back to SAUSD Community by Riding Across America
Anthony Bui, his sister Aileen, and girlfriend Hannah Pham, otherwise known as Healthnuts and Handlebars, have been on a serious training regimen to prepare themselves for their upcoming three-month bicycle trek on the TransAmerica Trail from Oregon to Virginia.
Both Bui siblings are graduates of Saddleback High School, while Pham is a graduate of Fountain Valley High School. All three are college graduates who wanted to make the trip before attending professional post-graduate schools in healthcare fields. The Buis are headed to medical schools and Pham to pharmacy school.
The team is making the three-month bicycle journey to raise funds for the Kevin Armstrong MD Memorial Sports Foundation , which provides support to Santa Ana Unified School District students to allow them to participate in sports.
None of the threesome was a serious cyclist before committing to the cross-country ride, but for the last three months, they have been on a serious riding schedule, including steep mountain climbs, and recently participating in a part of the Tour de California professional bicycle race.
Kick off for the adventure is May 1, 2014 with the goal of reaching Virginia by the end of July.
