Join us at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 8 at The Portico Campus for a free DocNight screening of “Ride With Larry”.

A discussion will take place after the film. This DocNight is being organized by PD Self, a Parkinson’s Disease support group that meets at The Portico campus. To learn more about this group, contact Gil Thelen.

The film follows Larry Smith. Larry doesn’t just live with Parkinson’s. He rises above it. After a 20-year battle with Parkinson’s, Larry has exhausted every conventional method of treatment, every drug, and even brain surgery. Refusing to give up, he seeks alternatives, discovering the untapped benefits of exercise and medical marijuana.

Now Larry will attempt the unthinkable, a 300-mile bike ride across South Dakota, a journey of hope for anyone facing a life altering illness. In this intimate portrait of courage, love, and community, Larry Smith refuses to give up, proving that if you love life, you’ll fight for it.
