Blood Road follows the journey of ultra-endurance mountain bike athlete Rebecca Rusch and her Vietnamese riding partner, Huyen Nguyen, as they pedal 1,200 miles along the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail through the dense jungles of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Their goal: to reach the crash site and final resting place of Rebecca’s father, a U.S. Air Force pilot shot down over Laos some 40 years earlier. During this poignant voyage of self-discovery, the women push their bodies to the limit while learning more about the historic ‘Blood Road’ they’re pedaling and how the Vietnam War shaped their lives in different ways.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here

Dollars from ticket sales go 100% toward MAG (Mines Advisory Group)
http://www.maginternational.org/what-we-do/what-we-do/

MAG’s work has helped more than 17.7 million people in conflict-affected communities in over 40 countries since 1989, giving them greater safety and the opportunity to rebuild their lives, livelihoods and futures.


LANDMINES AND UNEXPLODED ORDNANCE CLEARANCE

We help people to be safe from landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO), free from danger, free from fear. We find landmines before children do.

By removing unexploded landmines and UXO from land and destroying them, we enable communities to grow more food and make a better living, access better health services, and know that their children can walk to school in safety.

After MAG makes land safe, schools are improved and new ones constructed and refurbished, new homes built and agricultural land freed up.

Once roads are clear of landmines, trade routes can reopen, while NGOs and other organisations are able to reach remote areas to deliver humanitarian aid and development projects.

MAG has removed more than 4.7 million landmines and unexploded items – each one of which could have destroyed lives.
