“Rising from Ashes” is a feature length documentary about two worlds colliding when cycling legend Jock Boyer moves to Rwanda, Africa to help a group of struggling genocide survivors pursue their dream of a national team. As they set out against impossible odds both Jock and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their past.
Rising From Ashes will be shown tonight, Thursday, April 24 in Colorado Springs at 7 p.m. at the Stargazers Theatre & Event Center at 10 S. Parkside Dr. in Colorado Springs. The event is sponsored by the newly formed CSprings Bike Initiative. Advance tickets are $11 and can be purchased online at imAthlete. Not sure when the deadline is to purchase online. Tickets at the door will be $15.
I’ve heard really good things about the movie and a couple local coaches have gone and worked with Team Rwanda. If you can’t make it to tonight’s viewing, Rising from Ashes is on Netflix and it’s currently listed on eBay.
