FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TERRY HURST ARRIVING IN SEATTLE THIS WEEKEND, CYCLED FROM SALT LAKE CITY
He's just an ordinary, out-of-shape individual and he left home without a dime in his pocket
This week Terry is riding through Olympia and Tacoma on his way to Seattle. He is depending on community members and organizations to meet all of his needs for food, shelter, and cappuccino. He is asking for five million dollars in donations along the way.
Besides being the overweight, amateur cyclist, Terry is a community member with twenty years experience in community building. He has a professional background in writing and film. And he is spreading a message of community action and solidarity. He has made a commitment to ride around the country until he raises five million dollars.
-On 10.31.09 press release that was copied, from www.bikeforart.com website-
I met Terry through Portland Indy Media, on his bike stop in Portland, were we talked on camera for 30 minutes which I recorded and have finally completed all the various editing
I posted the original video on Portland Indy Media here:
Terry will be coming back through P town within the next few weeks sometime in November 2009
His social media website pages are all current and kind of cool to follow him on: as we the viewer /supporter can keep up with him on-line! Through all his links and media outlets and see whats "going on" in some "real time" time frames.
See the Indy post (above) for the complete list of all Terry's links
Art, Youth, Biking, Social Networking, Solidarity, Grass Roots Activism, Advocate for Empowering the Poor, Teaching , Father Role Model, ... all the stuff I have been waiting for!!
Ways to support - can be from spreading the word about this cause he is supporting, and Terry's Bike for Art Trek he has embarked on, OR you can: buy a pixel for a buck on the website, OR hook him up along the route with a meal or a bed, OR tell a friend "ahead on the route that he is coming their way" OR video tape him interview him or help him get some local press coverage, OR use his ideas and inspiration in our own communities.
Solidarity = Love
