Bike In Movie Tonight at Treasure City

1 08 2008

Treasure City is having a good-old fashioned bike in movie today at 8:00 pm! We like movies and we like bikes even more… so it’s no wonder that this sounds like a great idea. Here is some more information from their newsletter.


In the summer of 2006, while the football world’s attention was focused on
Germany, thousands of players around the globe were training hard and competing
to be part of the World Cup…The Homeless World Cup.
It began in 2001 as a wild idea —to give homeless people a chance to change
their lives through an international street soccer competition.   Five years
later, the annual Homeless World Cup had become an internationally recognized
sports competition.

The film follows seven players in their own tough worlds as they confront the
daily challenges of life on the streets, battle drug and alcohol addiction, and
fight for the right to be recognized as human beings. We witness their
struggles, hopes, and determination.

As the Russian coach observes, “To me, football is the best model for real
life. There is no last game in football and there is no last game in real life.
You always have another chance to win.”
