Almost here

See that little video window to the right? The one that says "2008 Ride Video"? Well, why watch a four minute postage stamp sized video when you can see the whole movie on the big screen? This Thursday night will be the world premiere of our Ride Team documentary. Tickets are only $5.00 and will be available at the door. Or you can get them in advance at the JDRF office. We will have DVD's for sale at the ticket table. Price is $15.00.

Now that the movie is finished we are starting to enter it film festivals. One of the first places it will be shown outside of West Michigan is in Knoxville, Tennessee at the end of this month. A new JDRF rider, Andrew Shafer, is holding a big fund raising event down there and is going to show the film. He is also going to arrange a screening at the University of Tennessee.

The excitement is building. We hope to see everyone at Celebration Cinemas North at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday. Ride on!

The movie really captured what this thing is all about, awesome job Tom. This will be great selling tool to get others on board. I think my husband really gets it now. Maybe this will help sell him for next year too!

Phenomenal job, Tom! Watching it really showed how the team really embraces the TEAM concept... along with the hopeful spirit I've been searching for. Congrats!
