Ride: One Man's Venture for Veterans

RIDE: One Man's Venture For Veterans is an inspirational 48-minute film documenting Jerry Schemmel's race across Colorado to raise money for Paws For Purple Hearts, a non-profit that trains and places highly-specialized service dogs with military veterans suffering from PTSD or TBI, or those with mobility challenges. Jerry attempts to break the UMCA record for a single-rider, non-stop bike race across the State of Colorado. Beginning at the Utah border at 4:00 in the morning, Jerry rides along Highway 50, across the western slope of Colorado, over the Continental Divide, and finally onto the eastern plains of Colorado, covering 468 miles on his trek to the Kansas border. He must overcome mechanical issues, road construction, bad weather and sleep deprivation. Will he break the record? Will he even finish the race? You'll learn about Jerry's own struggles with PTSD and why he is dedicated to helping our country's military veterans. You'll also enjoy some heartwarming stories of veterans and their beautiful service dogs.
