DASH ACROSS AMERICA bicyclers pass through Springfield

They began their trip on Memorial Day May 25th 2015, and have been bicycling from Oceanside, California, and are headed to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. to participate in the special 40th anniversary event, “Our Journey to Freedom,” at the Kennedy Center, see

They were here in Springfield on June 1, and stayed at the StageStop Hotel.

Dash Across America is a 3,004 mile coast-to-coast bicycle ride to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Vietnamese American journey to freedom and to pay tribute to those heroes who valiantly fight and give their lives to preserve freedom.

In 1975, the first wave of Vietnamese people immigrated to the United States of America seeking freedom from communism––our journey to freedom. Now 40 years later, they are using their freedom to fight for the freedom of others.

There are 30 million people who are victims of human trafficking all across our world––more than any other point in human history. Not only is this unimaginable, but it is unjust. Therefore, we have partnered with the Coalition to Abolish Modern-day Slavery in Asia (CAMSA), an international anti-human trafficking initiative founded by Boat People SOS (BPSOS). And together, we are fighting to abolish modern day slavery in the 21st century. Visit their website at
