A great BMX edit for a great cause. Here is what Peter Greaves has to say about the motivation and purpose for this edit…To support the cause click here
I had a load of footage sitting around and after I’d edited it up I decided to try and raise money for a cause that’s very close to my heart instead of just sticking it on the internet as usual.
I lost my younger brother Dave to Motor Neurone Disease last year. Dave got me into BMX and still took a keen interest in what was happening right up until he became ill, even though he quit riding a good while ago after getting a string of injuries.
He was a serious hip hop head and this vid uses one of the tracks he always told me I needed to use for a video: Tonights da Night, by Redman.
I won’t go into the details of MND (or ALS/ Lou Gehrig’s disease as it is known in the US) here but you can read more on my fundraising page: http://www.tinyurl.com/bikeagainstmnd
The vid is filmed in Newcastle, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Austin, Paris and Copenhagen and I just want to say a quick thanks to anyone who showed me around those places – the reason I decided to add the fundraising element is because I find BMXers are super generous with time and inner tubes, so probably cash too! – Pete G.
