Food, Film & Conversation Series-The Pelaton Project (Film)
October 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This film follows the lives of 39 cyclists as they prepare to take on the Cancervive Peloton Project. Team members must train for a year while raising support for cancer care in their community. Patrick Dempsey opens this film about 40 cyclists on a 10 day, 2500 mile journey from Calgary to Maine. The peloton team faces extreme challenges alongside cancer survivors for whom the cyclists ride. The Peloton Project reveals the heroic journey of both cyclist and cancer ‘warrior’ in their battle to make it to Maine to celebrate at the Dempsey Challenge survivorship weekend.
The Peloton Project looks closely at the people behind the cancer diagnoses to see what life is like for them before and after cancer and how they find strength to face the challenge ahead.
