This quarter, we'll be screening Ride with Larry, a feature-length documentary that puts a human face on the day-to-day fight against Parkinson’s through the story of Larry Smith, a retired police captain, now beloved small-town baker. After twenty years with the Parkinson’s, Larry plans to bike across his state of South Dakota in the Spring of 2011 with the support of his family and community to show the power of keeping your body active and mind positive, proving that the best cure is living life to its fullest. Watch a trailer for the film below.
