Darius Goes West
Last January I wrote about a wonderful documentary film called, Darius Goes West. It is the story of a young man with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy named Darius, who travelled across the country to Los Angeles with friends to be on the MTV show Pimp My Ride to get his power wheelchair customized. I was asked by Darius and his crew to publicize a new fundraising effort they just recently launched. They hope to sell a million DVDS of the documentary in a year to raise money for research to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The DVDs sell for $20; $17 goes directly to research and $3 goes to making more DVDs. If you want more information and want to purchase DVDs of this uplifting documentary, go to Darius Goes West.Org.
