Vance Walstra is a biker and a volunteer. He received an Omprakash Volunteer Grant which took him to Peru in 2008. Back in US he decided to ride his bike from Seattle to San Francisco and present Omprakash and its work to University students and professors. Today is the last day before completing his adventure. In a few hours he will arrive in San Francisco and while he cycles his last miles, the memories of his journey jumps to his mind in a roller coaster of emotions and thoughts. He finally see his experience and effort on the road as a metaphor for the universal and life changing feeling of accomplishment, discovery and learning that every volunteer goes through during their time spent working on volunteering projects.
Where is Omprakash going to take you?
