Mariel Mentink: Bike For Your Rights Benefit

This is a video I shot & edited at the Bike For Your Rights fundraiser, an event benefiting Mariel Mentink, an Austin cyclist who was hit while riding her bike on New Years Eve. Mariel sustained several life threatening injuries and the fundraiser was organized by several of her friends to help offset her medical bills.

I have personally never met Mariel, but couldn't turn down the opportunity to document this event in her absence. Several local businesses and talent, not to mention the hundreds of people in attendance, helped make the event a huge success and although Mariel could not be there in person, hopefully this video shows her how much love and support she has from her community. Get well soon Mariel!
