A Portrait of Cancer Across America

I’ve had the privilege of helping out with the “Portraits Project” under the direction of Claire Reiling. Each summer along the ride, I4K riders visit with cancer patients/survivors and ask them to tell their story. Our organization then works to document these stories and put the material in a cohesive and presentable form. I see the portraits project as a great tangible link between our ride and our cause.

So far this year our committee has worked on transcribing interviews and editing photographs of the interviewees. In the past these stories were turned into portable foam boards, but we have recently spent time brainstorming ideas for a new multimedia presentation.

Tonight was the first time our whole team got together to work on the Portraits Project. Claire gave each team member a slide to work on for a multimedia presentation. I can’t wait to see how this all comes together. Stay tuned!
