North of So Thankful!
I guess, let me start by saying thank you to you. If you’re reading this, thank you. We appreciate everything you do for us! You are what keeps us “pedaling.” And without a doubt, a big thanks needs to go to the crew at aperture cinema for hosting us and Red Bull for wanting to work with us.
From the very beginning, I thought this event had a good chance of being a success, but I had no idea that it would be as successful as it was. The day of the event, I barely ate, dragging from no sleep the night before, I surfed the anxiety right up until the moment people started to show up. I knew we presold about 20 tickets for an 80 seat theatre and I had deep hopes that we could fill it half way up. Wow was I wrong! It wasn’t until the one-by-one trickle of people turned into a line out the door that the thought of actually making our goal started to feel like a reality. It turns out, in reality, more than 70 people came to watch the movie with us! From those 70 people, we were able to raise over $900 to help fund our 5th annual HalloWheels festival happening October 31 – November 4(ish)- the most money raised to date.
So here I am again, with this feeling of North of So Thankful because I could’ve never have done this without the help of our entire, generous community of people who still haven’t outgrown their love of everything bikes. We’ve got so much coming up and I can’t wait to share it with everyone! Until then, keep the wheels spinning.
