About My Journey

Jim Dang in his Pursuit of HappinessMy name is Jim Dang and I am biking across the country with my good friend Dylan Peterson. I am dedicating my ride across America to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. I have suffered from depression my whole life and I am embarking on a journey to battle my depression head on. My roommate and I will be leaving from central Vermont, traveling to the Great Lakes, Chicago, Missouri, and then south to Texas where we will continue west and finish in California.

This trip is very important to me. It will be the biggest test of my life, and I hope you can all help me through it. I want to raise as much money as I can for research for depression so a small percentage of the next generation doesn't have to live with depression. Help me fight depression by donating anything you can.

Please donate for a good cause and wish my roommate and I the best. Thank you so much for reading this, and now it is your turn to fight for something YOU believe in.
