Anchor Bay Entertainment Proudly Presents the Moving Documentary Ride for Lance

The Film Follows Four Riders as They Cross America in Memory of Decorated Navy SEAL Lance Vaccaro

BEVERLY HILLS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- Anchor Bay Entertainment is proud and honored to announce the DVD release of Mactavish Pictures' Ride for Lance. From Producer and Navy veteran Scott Mactavish (Murph: The Protector), Ride for Lance captures the stirring emotions of four Navy SEAL bikers experiencing the thrill of the open road while meeting thousands of Americans along the way including active duty troops, veterans and families, who share their own stories of pride and heartbreak. Ride for Lance will be available on iTunes and DVD May 27, 2014 with a DVD SRP of $24.98. In honor of Chief Petty Officer Lance Vaccarro, Anchor Bay Entertainment will make a donation to the Navy SEAL Foundation.

From the filmmaker that brought you Murph: The Protector comes another moving tribute to a fallen hero. Chief Petty Officer Lance Vaccaro, a highly-decorated Navy SEAL, gave his life for his country in 2008. Two years later to honor his sacrifice, four riders and a support team launched The Lance Vaccaro Memorial Ride that covered the continental United States -- from Virginia to Alaska and back -- in his honor and memory. Thirty one days. 12,000 miles. Ride for Lance is an inspiring story about friends, family and a brother warrior that will never be forgotten.

Navy veteran Scott Mactavish, who last year produced the critically-acclaimed documentary Murph: The Protector, presents this film capturing the true emotions of those involved. Candid interviews and over 100 hours of footage have been culled into a moving, inspiring and thoughtful film that, again, demonstrates the depth of sacrifices our military continue to make and the profound power of patriotism.
