Southern Valve Service is proud to share the inspiring story of one of our own, D.T. “Danny” Huynh. A dedicated welder by profession and a compassionate humanitarian by nature, Danny’s journey is one of hard work, perseverance, and a deep commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. Danny joined the Southern Valver Service team in 2021 as a Valve Technician. His exceptional skills and dedication quickly propelled him to become a vital member of our welding team. But it’s outside the workshop where Danny’s true passion shines – on the race tracks, running for a cause greater than himself.
A passionate runner, Danny has been involved in competitive racing since 2018. But it’s not just the thrill of the race that drives him; it’s the community and the friendships he’s forged along the way. For Danny, running is more than a physical activity; it’s a mental therapy that keeps him grounded and focused.
Danny & Ainsley’s Angels
One of Danny’s most remarkable endeavors is his involvement with Ainsley’s Angels, a charity dedicated to inclusivity in races. Through this, he helps those with special needs experience the joy and thrill of racing, pushing them in specially designed race chairs. This noble cause resonates with the story of Ainsley Rossiter, a girl whose radiant smile and indomitable spirit continue to inspire thousands.
Danny’s commitment to charitable work is profound. Not only does he participate in 5-10 races annually, including a 100-mile race in Illinois last November, but he also innovatively combines his love for running with philanthropy. Three years ago, on his birthday, Danny decided to run for 24 hours straight, creating an annual event where friends donate to a chosen charity for every mile he runs. In his first attempt, he impressively covered 77 miles, turning his athletic prowess into a force for good for St. Jude Hospital.
Supporting the Cooper Life Fund with Smiles
This year, Danny is dedicating his 24-hour run to the Cooper Life Fund, continuing his tradition of supporting meaningful causes through his endurance and determination.
Danny’s story is a testament to the impact one individual can have. His achievements in both his professional life at Southern Valve Service and his charitable endeavors exemplify the values we hold dear. He reminds us that with passion, commitment, and a willingness to help others, we can all make a significant impact in our communities. We are not just proud of Danny. for his professional accomplishments but also deeply inspired by his philanthropic spirit. He exemplifies the best of us, and we are honored to have him on our team.
As we celebrate Danny Huynh’s remarkable journey and his commitment to making a difference, we invite you to join us in supporting these incredible causes.
