Speeding to a Cure
Short doc on cancer charity Your Ride is Here debuts tomorrow

The Ferrari Enzo is a beast of a car, a 200mph, 651 Horsepower V12 monster. So that makes it a pretty unlikely ambulance. Well, not according to local charity Your Ride is Here.
Founded by car enthusiast and cancer survivor Ken Adams, Your Ride is Here provides transport to and from treatment for cancer patients. But this isn't a regular taxi service: Volunteers have provided everything from a delivery truck to high-end sports cars like the Enzo, just to give the patient a little brightness on an otherwise agonizing road. A new short documentary about the organization – filmed by documentarian Casey Porter – screens tomorrow, March 18, at 1pm at the Cool River Cafe, 4001 West Parmer Lane.
We got a quick look at the filming of the doc on a very special day: Not just one, but two Enzos on camera at the same time (let's just say that's the motorsports equivalent of a double rainbow.)
