      Hello Donna,

      We are anxious to get everyone who backed the film a DVD. The film is being edited right now. DVDs will most likely be sent in 2013 as we have to wait until after the film is shown publicly, which will be this coming fall through spring.

      Thanks again for your support. We think you're going to like the film :)

      Best,
      Team Ride with Larry

      Just wondering how production is going. I backed Ride With Larry last year and am looking forward to receiving the DVD! :-)

      YES!!! I was really hoping you guys would reach your goal! Congratulations!

    9. Creator John Alexander on January 26, 2011

      Extremely exciting to log in this morning and see that the goal of $ 50,000 had been reached! Congratulations to the entire "Ride with Larry" Team. You have done a terrific job of encouraging backers to get the word out and it has paid off. There's no doubt that more funds will benefit the project, so everyone should continue to spread the word right up until the completion of the actual ride.

      NEVER underestimate the power of the people! It took a small village, but you did it. My hearty congratulations to you all!

    13. Creator Elizabeth Smith on January 26, 2011

      Thank you each and every one for your help in meeting our goal for this project! We couldn't go forward without you. Now put June 25th on your calendar to meet up in Sioux Falls and cycle to Vermillion where we will celebrate the completion of filming and give away a 3-wheel recumbent Catrike to someone with Parkinson's who will love the freedom and energy it offers. If you don't cycle, join us in Vermillion that afternoon to welcome the riders, celebrate and enjoy some of Vermillion's legendary friendliness and hospitality.

    14. Creator Lking on January 26, 2011

      Congratulations on reaching your goal !! Looking forward to riding with Larry in June if that is possible. Also plan on driving down to Vermillion this weekend to try some of his delicious baked goods and meet Larry if that is possible. Again, congratulations.

      I just posted your link to my Facebook page. I learned about you through an email for the Davis Phinney Foundation. I see a lot of Davis's determination in you Larry. You WILL get all the money you need...I just know it! If by some strange occurance that doesn't happen, just give my donation to Davis's Foundation...it will help to do some good in the long run. I wish you all th best! I wish I could be there and ride with you! Tailwinds to you!

      Okay, I'm confused. How do I get from this page to the campaign page?

      We want to upgrade to a new level since we've decided it's a "Ride with Larry Christmas!" How can we change our status from one category to another?
