MoveShake Will Screen Story of Shannon Galpin

MoveShake will show two films online this Thursday at 9 p.m. Eastern. One of the videos is a profile of Shannon Galpin, the founder of Mountain2Mountain. Galpin formed the non-profit in 2006 to help the women and girls of Afghanistan. Two years ago, she biked the country in an effort to raise awareness and funds. If the trailer above tweaks your interest, you can learn more about Galpin by reading Nick Heil's story, "The Ride of Her Life."

The other movie profiles Juan Solis, a former sea turtle poacher turned conservationist who lives in Baja, Mexico.

Both films will screen online at MoveShake.org.
