When I was asked by Richard Cordova, from the Test Positive Aware Network, to help him with a film to promote the Ride for AIDS Chicago, I couldn’t help but to say yes. Chronicling the 200 mile journey seemed like a marathon, creating content all while on the move. The charity event takes riders from Chicago to the Wisconsin countryside and back over the course of two days and this year it raised over $700,000.
We met some amazing people along the way and here are some of their stories.
