A ride that my friend Steve Mercer did a few years back, quite amazing

As you know, about four years ago I set out to make a documentary about myself and three of my friends. We swapped our wheelchairs for quad bikes and rode 5000km across the outback to visit our crash sites. It was an amazing journey, one I can't wait to share with you!

THE RIDE is a documentary about resilience and I'm proud to say that the film is finally finished and ready for an audience!

That's where you come in. We need your help. Can you imagine the inspiration to the disheartened and the subtle road safety messages to our youth from this documentary?

We are planning a national tour of THE RIDE. We want to hit the road again and make a trip around Australia, hosting the screening of the film for local communities, organisations and schools. To make that happen, we have just launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the money we need to take THE RIDE around the country.

Crowdfunding is nothing new; it's basically fundraising over the internet where you set a "target goal" for a project and a time-limit for you to reach that goal. We've put our project (take THE RIDE on a national tour) up online on a site called indiegogo. You can check out the page here: http://www.indiegogo.com/theridedocumentary .

Our campaign went live yesterday, which means that we have 32 days to raise $40,000.

If you are in a position to support us there are some great rewards and gifts.

Crowdfunding relies on social media, so even if you can't contribute financially, can you please:

1. Tell your friends about our crowdfunding campaign. Forward them this email and the link: http://www.indiegogo.com/theridedocumentary

2. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter:

Please spread the word! Get inspired about the film - and share THE RIDE with your friends. We want to get everybody talking about THE RIDE.
