Facing her sister’s terminal cancer, cyclist Maria Parker fought back by undertaking the 3,000 mile race of a lifetime. 

An accident that destroyed equipment and devastated rider and crew could not stop the team. She rode on to the greatest comeback in the world’s toughest race.

This is a story about hope in the face of terminal illness and Maria Parker's incredible 2013 Race Across America. It is about refusing to accept impossible in toughest race.

100% of ticket sale revenue funds brain cancer research through 3000 Miles to a Cure.

The mission of 3000 Miles to a Cure is to end brain cancer by raising funds for research, extending an open invitation to unite in hope and action for the cure.
