If you missed our showing of With My Own Two Wheels this summer, you’ve got another chance to check it out TONIGHT. The film, which is currently being shown across the country and internationally as part of Bicycle Film Festival, features five incredible stories about the life-changing power of a bicycle. Shot on location in Zambia, Ghana, India, Guatemala and California, the film includes breathtaking regional footage and inspirational narratives that highlight the impact a bicycle can have in improving a life.
This special showing is being put on by the students of Charles Wright Academy for World Bicycle Relief. Since 2005, World Bicycle Relief has provided 87,265 bicycles to people in developing nations. They work with local assemblers to produce heavy duty bicycles designed to withstand rugged roads while carrying up to 200 pounds of cargo. As part of their current project, they’re working to provide 50,000 bicycles to improve rural Zambian children’s access to education.
Charles Wright Academy has already raised $7,000 to support this project, with the goal of raising a total of $14,000, and they plan to send five students to Zambia in February to help assemble and distribute the bikes. Come out this Friday to see an awesome movie and support a great cause!
