Chief Petty Officer Lance Vaccaro, a United States Navy SEAL, gave his life for his country in 2008.
On June 17th, 2010, four riders and a support team, all friends of Lance, launched the The Lance Vaccaro Memorial Ride and rode from Virginia Beach to Alaska and back in his honor. They covered 12,000 miles in 31 days, and met folks from large cities and small towns across North America, including active duty troops, veterans, and the families of deployed and fallen troops who shared their stories of pride and heartbreak.
A film crew accompanied them along the way and captured over 100 hours of footage, and nearly 30,000 high definition photographs. Ride for Lance is an inspiring movie about friends, family and a brother warrior that will never be forgotten.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the DVD and related gear will go to the Navy SEAL Foundation, in perpetuity.
