Freestyle mountain biker Matt Macduff is one of the most motivated athletes out there. Not only is he extremely motivated on his bike, he also puts a lot of efforts giving back to the sport as a whole. Over the last couple years, he released countless insane web videos with nothing but his will to get kids stoked on riding bicycles. This year, he decided to dedicate himself to a project he had in mind for a long time: Project Breathe Easy

Open loop Project Breathe Easy

Project Breathe Easy is a fund raising campaign for Cystic Fibrosis Canada through the promotion and distribution of a full length film featuring some of the world's top, most innovative freestyle mountain bikers. Cystic Fibrosis is the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadians including Matt's younger sister Caitlin and approximately 4000 people in Canada. With one person passing away weekly the disease is no joke. Currently 18 years old, Caitlin is already halfway through the average life expectancy along with hundreds of others.

For the last couple months, Matt has been hard at work in Nova Scotia, spending countless hours building a one of a kind slopestyle course packed with unique features that are guaranteed to get everyone stoked!

Once the course will be ready, invited riders Sam Reynolds, Pavel ‘Vishneviy’ Alekhin and Sam Pilgrim will fly their way to Nova Scotia to ride the course with Matt, while videographers Nic Genovese and Aaron Larocque from Mind Spark Cinema capture the action. They will produce a movie that will be available for purchase through iTunes with the objective of raising over 50 000$ for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

Last year's "Dreams" was just the point of the iceberg for Matt and the S.O.F.

 I've Donated 100CAD. Matt seems to be such a good guy, it goes to a good cause, and the movie will be next level for sure. Him and Pavel are always getting me stoked to go ride, when see one of their videos.

 props to Matt! Such a great cause, a great dude, and a solid roster of riders. Hold it down for your sis so she can keep fighting the good fight.

 I recomend reaching out to Kevin Smith, yes the movie director. He loves Canada, and he knows how to cut out the middle man and make self distribution. Cut out iTunes=more cash. Or maybe iTunes should man up and give their cut back to CF research. I never buy videos, but this one I would pre-order.

 IF they wouldnt go through Itunes and lose 25% of the profits they would be soo much more ahead of the game..
