Ride to Freedom
Posted Sunday, July 12, 2015 03:16 PM

Dear Friends,

I’d like to introduce the youth ambassadors of the Ride To Freedom team who are on a 3000 mile bike ride across the country on a mission to rescue orphans who’s parents were murdered for their belief.  They also wish to raise awareness and gain support in an effort to stop the persecution of the Falun Dafa practitioners in China. 

They began day 29 of their journey at my studio in Jamestown where they had spent the night before.  They began a series of Vlogs on day 29.  Here are some clips taken at the studio and in Columbia, MO  at the rally coordinated by my daughter, Sara.



From here they proceeded to St. Louis and Chicago.  In Chicago they were honored by and shared the stage with the Rev Jessi Jackson.  

When they get to Washington D.C. they hope to meet with President Obama.  Here is their story in an open letter that they have posted on their web site.  https://www.facebook.com/ride2freedom2015/videos/vb.705996366137894/811567232247473/?type=2&theater

From Washington D.C. they travel to New York to make an appeal at the Untied Nations.  

On their web site and Facebook page you can follow them and learn how you can lend your support.

Thank you for your kind attention.
