Grand Rapids Press on 1/31/09

Reading the Grand Rapids Press this morning... and Steve says: "Um, wow, look at that". A HUGE picture of the JDRF West Michigan Chapter ride team in Death Valley on the top half of the Outdoor section.

The trailer for the documentary, "More than 100 Miles: Riding to Cure Diabetes", by Tom Scheidel will be shown at the Bicycle Film Festival that is the feature of the article.

Tom is quoted in the article as well. Nice work on getting JDRF Ride to Cure some press coverage! http://www.mlive.com/outdoors/index.ssf/2009/01/grand_rapids_film_festival_to.html

I was geeked this morning when I saw the article. I spoke with the writer for about a half hour and sent him a bunch of photos of both DV and Asheville. It's great publicity for the film and the cause.

My favorite thing about that article?

Tom's tralier was the last piece added to the menu.

It'll be the shortest too.

What pic dominated the page?

'Tis true - we rock!

I hope to see you there!
