Ride Crazy: The Single-Man March

Written by Boston Biker on Dec 14

Got this in the email looks fun:

I wanted to get in touch with you guys regarding my new film, called “Ride Crazy: The Single-Man March”. It chronicles Boston’s own Camilo Atehortua ‘s 520-mile solo bicycle ride from Boston to Washington, DC. He is an Iraq war vet with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and the purpose of the ride was to raise money for The Wounded Warrior Project. Along the way, he contends with a nor’easter and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. We are having a premiere
on January 14 at Kendall Square Cinema with proceeds going to Wounded Warriors. You can check out the trailer at www.ridecrazy.com.

From the website:

We are pleased to announce that you will have the opportunity to join us for the premiere of “Ride Crazy: The Single-Man March” on Monday, January 14, 2013 at the Kendall Square Cinema. Tickets for the event will be $30, including a $10 donation to Wounded Warriors. Seating is limited, so head over to Shop Tonekat to purchase your tickets today!

On Sunday, November 4, 2012, Camilo set off on a 520-mile solo bike ride that took him all the way from Boston to Washington, DC. The purpose of the ride was to raise money for Wounded Warriors. The goal was to reach the Iwo Jima Memorial one week later, on Veteran’s Day.

Even though the ride is over, you can still donate here!
