PROJECT 1 TO HOST A FILM EVENT FEATURING RIDE THE DIVIDE
The Event includes a Silent Auction and Special Guest Speaker Mary Collier Participates in Post Film Discussion
In January 2013, Jamila K. Gaskins will ride her bike 12,000 miles across the country to areas most affected with HIV and AIDS in America, to raise awareness of HIV prevention and women. This expedition is titled Project 1, and will involve Gaskins and a film crew documenting her entire journey. On August 6, 2011, she will host a screening of Ride the Divide at the Downtown Independent to raise money for this project. Ride the Divide is testament to riding with a purpose and will be followed by a discussion with expert cyclist Mary Collier.
The event is from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., tickets are $20, and will also host a silent auction.
The acclaimed film, Ride the Divide, is an award-winning feature film about the world's toughest mountain bike race, which traverses over 2700 miles along the Continental Divide in the Rocky Mountains. The film weaves the story of three characters' experiences with immense mountain beauty and small-town culture as they attempt to pedal from Banff, Canada to a small, dusty crossing on the Mexican border. Special guest speaker for the afternoon is Mary Collier, the first woman to race and finish the intense 2700 mile race on the Continental Divide.
